“Who Is the Man of the Shroud?” museum-quality exhibition is permanently housed at Pilgrim Center of Hope in San Antonio, Texas.

  • Explore an unsolved mystery—the most studied relic in the world; an ancient, linen cloth bearing the image of a tortured and crucified man’s body. Who do you say he is?
  •  Get up-close with re-creations of torture instruments used on the man. Walk through panels detailing the Shroud’s history, into scientific discoveries of our modern era.
  • See a full-size, certified replica of the Shroud of Turin and full-size, illuminated photographic negatives of the Shroud image.
  • Examine – and even touch – the bronze sculpture “The Body of the Man of the Shroud” by Prof. Luigi Mattei based on the three-dimensional data contained in the Shroud image.
