"A determination of the kinetics of vanillin loss suggests the shroud is between 1,300 and 3,000 years old." In the 1988 study, scientists from three universities concluded that the cloth dated from some time between 12.This ruled it out as the possible burial cloth that wrapped the body of Christ.Raymond Rogers says his research and chemical tests show the material used in the 1988 radiocarbon analysis was cut from a medieval patch woven into the shroud to repair fire damage.It was this material that was responsible for an invalid date being assigned to the original shroud cloth, he argues.These tests revealed the presence of a chemical called vanillin in the radiocarbon sample and in the Holland cloth, but not the rest of the shroud.Vanillin is produced by the thermal decomposition of lignin, a chemical compound found in plant material such as flax.
Frank Wognum, Duffort, France I think that regardless of whether it is or is not Christ's burial cloth, testing should still be allowed to take place.The human nature and nature of humanity that allows us as a mammal to have such relics to debate over is the true miracle.Richard, Edmonton, Canada While I find the discussion on this article, and its age, interesting historically, it has no effect on my faith.It is said to have been restored by nuns who patched the holes and stitched the shroud to a reinforcing material known as the Holland cloth."[The radiocarbon sample] has obvious painting medium, a dye and a mordant that doesn't show anywhere else," Mr Rogers explained.
