Petition to Pope Francis to Test the Shroud of Turin

524 Signatures Goal: 50,000



After scientific techniques and technologies have been developed and perfected at the atomic and molecular levels, we request that Pope Francis allow such minimally-invasive testing to be performed on the Shroud of Turin.


Since 1978, thousands of scientific tests and experiments have been performed on this famous burial cloth and its samples. Significantly, only one of these results - its medieval radiocarbon dating - is inconsistent with the Shroud’s authenticity as Jesus’ burial garment. Scientific techniques and technologies could be developed and perfected to test the Shroud at the molecular and atomic levels. Examining the cloth, its blood marks and other samples at these levels could not only prove that the radiocarbon dating attributed to the Shroud is inherently incorrect, but that an unprecedented event happened to the dead body of the crucified man wrapped inside of this burial cloth.

If atomic and molecular testing can be developed and perfected with control samples and linen cloths, we respectfully request that Pope Francis allow these new tests on the Shroud of Turin. These tests would not be limited to, but would include the new technologies summarized above and described in more detail in the book Test the Shroud and in articles throughout the www.testtheshroud.org website. These new tests would yield the most detailed information ever acquired from the cloth, while testing every explanation for the Shroud’s radiocarbon dating and image forming hypotheses that have been proposed.

Please note that your name and email address will be added electronically to the petition found on our website at testtheshroud.org. Thank you for your support.

    To my mind, the idea of new tests is the right one. It will undoubtedly help some of us, or many of us, to get closer to Jesus, his teaching and the truth in his teaching. Milosz Grygierczyk, Poland

    Pope Francis please have the Shroud of Turin tested to prove its validity.

    Please try to retest the Shroud in a way that utilizes an actual logical scientific process (like: Applied AFM techniques and SERS, ATR-FTIR, etc.) to test pieces of the original, non-carbonized, unburned remains of the Holy Shroud ...and thus, using non-destructive analyses: a good investigation, avoiding to destroy forever these precious samples!.

    It seems to me the more the Shroud is examined the more fascinating results, so may it continue. I think it's showing us how much more we have to learn about ourselves. I would like to see it tested for sound and vibration. Tina Bearham England
