The Shroud of Turin has passed yet another examination
Scientists at Italy's National Agency for New Technologies, Energy, and Sustainable Development are saying that the colours on the famous shroud must have been produced using some form of electro-magnetic energy not available in medieval times.
After testing the colours, the scientific team concluded that their shade, texture, and depth must have been imprinted using something equivalent to ultraviolet lasers capable of generating extremely brief pulses of light.
As lasers weren't around at the time, the scientists think that the colours may have been created because of "some form of electro-magnetic energy (such as a flash of light at a short wavelength)."
The Vatican has never said the shroud was the authentic burial cloth of Christ - just that the image reminds believers of Christ's sufferings while the Italian scientific team called their findings "another piece of the puzzle."
