Seeking the Face of Christ How the Shroud of Turin Reveals God’s Love.
Body: The Shroud of Turin is an ancient linen cloth which holds a graphic depiction of a scourged and crucified man. It is widely regarded as the most scientifically studied artifact in history, yet no one explain how the mysterious image was formed. The wounds of the Man of the Shroud mirrors the Biblical narrative of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ.

The Future Exhibit

The National Museum of Funeral History (NMFH) is sponsoring presentations of the Shroud of Turin to share information about the precious linen and to raise awareness of it’s planned permanent exhibit: “The Most Famous Burial of All Time”.

The NMFH is working with the suport and encouragement of the Archdiocese of Gaiveston-Houston to open this exhibit by Easter 2023. The exhibit will feature a certified copy of the Shroud from the Archdiocese of Turin as well as displays discussing the established history and scientific studies of the Shroud. It presents the facts about the Shroud and allows visitors to draw their own conclusions about the identity of the “man of the Shroud”. The Funeral Museum is a secular setting which will provide the opportunity to share the facts and information about the Shroud with a broad cross-section of musuem visitors.
