The Shroud of Turin: 1. Introduction

This is part 2, the "1. Introduction," sub-contents page in my series, "The Shroud of Turin." Each contents topic will be linked to a page with that heading about that topic. . The series was originally titled: "The Shroud of Jesus?" but I have changed it to "The Shroud of Turin" so that posts in the series are more easily found using a search engine. See part 1, the Contents page, for more details.

[Above (click to enlarge): "The Shroud of Turin: modern photo of the face, positive left, negative right. Negative has been contrast enhanced": Wikipedia. Note that the photographic negative of the Shroud's image (right) is a photographic positive. Therefore the Shroud's image (left) is actually a type of photographic negative! But even the concept of a photographic negative was unknown until the early 19th century!]
