 Our Description


Sacred Blood, Sacred Image - The Sudarium Of Oviedo - New Evidence For The Authenticity Of The Shroud Of Turin
Janice Bennett


The Sudarium Of Oviedo is an ancient, bloodstained cloth that was rescued from the Persian invasion of Jerusalem in 614 AD. Believed to be the Sudarium of the Lord, it was hidden in a chest of relics and taken by sea to Spain. When the Moors invaded the country in 711, the Christians fled to the north with their relics, safeguarding their treasure in a well on the top of a mountain known as Monsacro. Fifty years later Oviedo became its permanet residence, and the cloth quickly began to acquire fame as word spread throughout medieval Europe. What is this mysterious relic, and how was it used? Is it the sudarium of Jesus mentioned in John 20:5-7, and can it finally prove the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin? Science is beginning to unravel its mystery, casting new light on the passion and death of Jesus of Nazareth.
