Index "C": Turin Shroud Encyclopedia

Index "C"

This is the index page, "C", entry #4, of my "Turin Shroud Encyclopedia." See entry #1, the Main Index "A-Z" for information about this series. This sub-index page will be closely followed by entry #5, Crispino, Dorothy, who died on 16 August 2014.

[Right: Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus (905–959)[2] depicted being crowned by Christ[3]. As the boy co-Emperor of the Byzantine Empire, Constantine VII received the Shroud (as the Image of Edessa/Mandylion, folded in eight (tetradiplon) with only the face one-eighth panel visible[4]-see below) in Constantinople on August 8, 944[5].]

I am going to try to post an encyclopedia entry about every item of significant Shroud of Turin news, soon after it appears. The entries

[Left: Constantine VII depicted in 10th century icon at Saint Catherine's Monastery, Sinai, as the Edessa king Abgar V (BC 4–AD 50)[6] receiving the Image of Edessa, with Jesus' face in landscape aspect (again as it is when the Shroud is folded eight times with the Man in the Shroud's face uppermost) from Jesus' disciple Thaddeus.]

may therefore temporarily sacrifice completeness for speed of posting, but I will try to improve each entry over time. I will try to make these sub-index pages interesting, by including something brief about a topic in it (e.g. "Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus") but it will not take the place of an eventual full page entry on that topic.
