Item Description...
The story of the Sudarium of Oviedo, an ancient, bloodstained cloth believed to have covered the head of Jesus of Nazareth after his crucifixion. The author traces the known history of the linen, presents the up-to-date conclusions of EDICES, the investigative team that has been studying the cloth since 1989, discusses the cultural significance of crucifixion and blood in the context of first-century Jerusalem, and demonstrates the significance of the famous passage of John 20:5-7, as analyzed by some of the most important Biblical scholars of the world. 20 pages of color photographs. Many are from EDICES, and explain visually the bloodstains and wrinkles found on the cloth, its comparison with the Shroud of Turin, how the cloth was used, and its historical odyssey from Jerusalem to Spain.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Informative but not especially well-written  Mar 23, 2008
Plenty of facts but a very dry read. I guess I was spoiled by Da Vinci Code... LOL! It a solid factual (albiet fictional) version of a relic related to the Turin Shroud.
A Relic of the Burial of Jesus?  Aug 13, 2005
Bennett traces the history of the survival and veneration of a presumed relic of the death and burial of Jesus of Nazareth, a relic about which relatively little has been known outside Spain, where it has been kept since the eighth century. The relic is a square of linen about the size of a handtowel, and was presumably used to cover the face of Jesus'corpse before he was removed from the cross, and remained over his face until his corpse was placed into the tomb, where a clean shroud replaced it (the Shroud of Turin?) A separate face cloth which was rolled up and placed to the side of the entombed corpse is explicitly mentioned in the discovery of the empty tomb account in John's gospel. The markings (bloodstains, etc) on the Sudarium match quite strikingly the stains on and about the head of the figure on the Shroud of Turin. Since the Sudarium has been in Spain without question since the eighth century, Bennett feels this underscores the currently admitted inaccuracy of the carbon dating of the Shroud of Turin, which originally estimated the Shroud to have dated only from the Middle Ages. Bennett's writing is impassioned, and she makes an effort to separate legend (pious and otherwise)from historically supportable evidence, while clearly respecting the authenticity of any uninterrupted or unchallenged tradition in the history of the Western Church.
A nice introduction to a relic you've never heard of before   Jun 6, 2005
I had never heard of the Sudarium of Oviedo until I came across this book. Janice Bennett does a nice job explaining what a sudarium was, why the Israelites used it in cases where the dead person had been disfigured and why this particular sudarium is so important.

The best part of the book is on ancient Jewish burial customs because it helps explain so much about the burial of Jesus and what came after. Bennett also explains how the Sudariam got to Spain. If you've read about the Shroud of Turin this is a must have companion book.
