Shroud Encounter Coming to UMass Amherst

Shroud Encounter is a dramatic big screen experience and in-depth exploration into the mysteries of the Shroud of Turin. Using a CSI approach, audiences are taken on a thought provoking adventure through early church history, ancient art, modern science, and medical forensics. 
Could the Shroud be the most important archaeological artifact ever found, or is it just a medieval fake? Does it provide clues to what happened during the crucifixion and resurrection, or is it just a pious art work created to represent these events? After thousands of hours of scientific analysis, the Shroud remains a profound mystery. 

This highly acclaimed multi-media presentation will be held in the Catholic Newman Center located at 472 N. Pleasant Street, Amherst, MA on Monday, March 10th at 7 pm. A rare, museum quality life-size replica of the shroud will be on display. Admission is free.
