COMMENTS ON RESTORATION
Shroud of Turin Website
Tuesday, October 15, 2002
Barrie Schwortz Writes:
Over the past month, I have spoken with many of the researchers who attended
a special, invitation-only viewing of the newly restored Shroud in Turin, on
Friday, September 20, 2002. They expressed a very broad spectrum of opinions
on the restoration and the results. Some believe that proper care was
exercised in the performance of the restoration and that the removed
materials were properly documented and archived so they could be used for
future testing. Others believe that considerable material was lost or
contaminated and that future testing would be severely impacted because of
the intervention. Some even believe that certain tests may never be able to
be performed. Concerns have been expressed criticizing the techniques used
during the restoration, including possible DNA contamination and
overexposure to ultraviolet light sources. From a personal point of view,
the most disturbing comment made by one of the experts was that the
proportions of the image itself have been altered, and this seems to be
confirmed in official statements by the Turin authorities.
I have created this page in an effort to provide website viewers with access
to all of these opinions. Hopefully, it will serve as a forum where the
experts can give concise written statements that present the scientific
basis for their opinions, and where you, the viewer can get the information
necessary to make up your own mind.
