The Shroud of Turin (or Turin Shroud) is a linen cloth bearing the hidden image of a man who appears to have been physically traumatized in a manner consistent with crucifixion.

It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy.

It is believed by many, though not all, to be a cloth worn by Jesus Christ at the time of his burial, two days prior to his alleged resurrection.

The image on the shroud is much clearer in black-and-white negative than in its natural sepia color.

The striking negative image was first observed on the evening of May 28, 1898 on the reverse photographic plate of amateur photographer Secondo Pia who was allowed to photograph it while it was being exhibited in the Turin Cathedral.

According to Pia, he almost dropped and broke the photographic plate from the shock of seeing an image of a person on it.

A two hour conference would lead you to understand and decide whether it is the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.

A full-size positive and negative image of the Shroud would be present along with the conference.
