Man of Pain - The Holy Shroud (2003)

Man of Pain - The Holy Shroud: This documentary takes a balanced view as it weaves its way through the labyrinth of similarities between the Gospel accounts and the iconography of Jesus Christ. There is documentary evidence that the Shroud, venerated in France as early as 1350, is the Shroud we see today preserved in Turin. The documentary takes the historical high ground as it presents the places, the written evidence, the changes of ownership, the various expositions and the first 1898 photograph that changed everything -- bringing the Holy Shroud into the realm of modern science and to worldwide attention for the very first time. The documentary reports on the first examinations of the fabric and the imprint left on it by the body of a dead man who had been tortured and crucified. It describes the discovery of red blood cells and pollen traces, carbon-14 dating, and computerized image processing.
