THE MYSTERIES OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE
a documentary by Luca Trovellesi Cesana
The historicity of Jesus Christ has always been subject of intense debate. The issue of the Resurrection of his body is even more hotly debated. Is it just a mystery of faith or could it have rather been an historical fact, thus leaving some physical traces? As many believe, one trace does exist. It is an extraordinary remnant that even the most skeptical ones regard with interest and respect: the Holy Shroud of Turin. It is supposedly the cloth that would have wrapped the body of Jesus when he was buried. But it is not the only one: more clothes could have reached us straight from that tragic day of two thousand years ago, such as the Sudarium of Oviedo. Are they the evidence of the historical existence of Jesus doubted by a few people? Above all, could they reveal us what really happened in that sepulchre?
In this fascinating investigation where Science and Faith meet, we will try to shed light on the mysteries of the Holy Sepulchre.
