Where was the Shroud of Turin during the 400 Missing Years?
Forward in Faith invites you to
Dr. Cheryl White’s Findings from the Vatican Private Archives

St. Vincent’s Cathedral, Bedford, Texas
The Shroud of Turin is arguably the most important artifact of Christianity, or indeed all religions. Without the resurrection, Christianity would not be what it is or has been for two thousand years. Of all the miracles performed by Jesus, the most important one, His resurrection, was not witnessed first-hand by anyone. With the Shroud being the primary burial cloth, it holds amazing details of His crucifixion as well as his resurrection.
We are honored to have Dr. Cheryl White return to St. Vincent’s and give us an update on her recent research regarding the Shroud of Turin’s location during the years that heretofore have not been understood. Dr. White gave us a “deep dive” into the history and scientific inquiry of the Shroud of Turin in February 2018, when she announced that she and one other Shroud scholar were granted admission to the private archives of the Vatican. Their work with the Vatican archive documents this Spring was fruitful and revealed facts that will assist in telling the story about the travels of the Shroud over the roughly 400 missing years.
Dr. White promised to come back and let us know what her research revealed about the Shroud’s journey to Turin, Italy where it rests today. Dr. White is the Hubert is the H. Humphreys Endowed Professor of History in the Department of History and Social Science for Louisiana State University at Shreveport. She is an academic historian of medieval and early modern Europe where she has taught for over twenty years. Dr. White is a published author in the fields of sixteenth century studies, church history and has a long-standing interest in the Holy Shroud of Turin as both a historical artifact and also as a holy relic of Christianity.
Dr. White is a member of the American Confraternity of the Holy Shroud, the only authorized affiliate of the Arch-Confraternity of Turin, the curators and custodians of the Holy Shroud since 1597. She also belongs to the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem, an 800 year old chivalric order pledged to the tomb of Christ.
We are fortunate that Dr. White brings to us a systematic exploration of the consensus of current scholarship and her research on the Holy Shroud.
