Term given to studies relating to the Turin Shroud, a burial
shroud that some people have promoted as the one in which
Jesus was wrapped after his crucifixion. A first Sindonological
Congress, held in Turin in 1939, was attended by scholars, primarily
Roman Catholic, who supported the claims of the
Shroud, though the majority of those who have studied the
cloth have pronounced it a product of the Middle Ages.
