.- Scientists from around the world are scheduled to gather at the Catholic University of Valencia, Spain, April 29-May 1 for an International Scientific Convention entitled, “The Shroud Today,” where they will discuss the latest discoveries about the revered artifact that tradition says is the burial cloth of Christ.

The Avan news agency reports that speakers at the Convention will include Bruno Barberis, Director of the International Shroud Center of Turin; American physicist John Carrol; and the President of the Turin Shroud Center in Colorado Springs, John Jackson.

The Spanish Center for Sindonology is organizing the event, which will include conferences, round-table discussions and cultural visits.  The program will also feature a new expo on the shroud entitled, “The Man of the Holy Shroud.”

A significant number of discoveries have been made since studies on the Shroud began in 1977 by a group of scientists led by John Jackson at the NASA center in Pasadena, California.

Participants at the gathering will also discuss the most recent research on the shroud, including studies on pollen samples and the carbon 14 dating.   More information on the event can be found at: www.linteum.com
