Click above photo for link to original news article (in Italian) On November 21, 2017, it was announced that Pope Francis approved the suggestion by Archbishop Cesare Nosiglia, the Archbishop of Turin, to allow a special exhibition of the Shroud exclusively for the pilgrimage of young people in August 2018.
On August 9 and 10, young people from the 17 dioceses of Piedmont and Valle d'Aosta will arrive in Turin.
In fact, ten years ago, to celebrate our 30th anniversary, I created a special tribute video that was shown at the 2008 Columbus, Ohio Shroud Conference.
Even sadder, since I produced that video, several more team members have passed, so their names are not included in the memorial at the end of the tribute.
There were so many that we have compiled them all into a separate document which we are including here: Diana Fulbright Memorial.
I must also sadly report the passing of long time Shroud scholar and researcher Dr. Whanger, 87, of Durham, North Carolina, at the Duke University Medical Center on October 21, 2017, after a brief illness.
He is survived by Mary Whanger, his wife of 63 years and a noted Shroud scholar in her own right.
The exhibition will not be open to the general public.
