10:05 Thomas de Wesselow - British art historian on the Shroud of Turin
Thomas de Wesselow is a British Art historian and investigator of Medieval images. He has new research on the Shroud of Turin which for centuries has been regarded by some as the burial cloth of Jesus – by others, as the most elaborate hoax in history.
