Shroud of Turin Image and Ancient Christ Pantocrator Icon Appear To Be A Match

In 1207, Nicholas d’Orrante, the abbot of Casole and the Papal legate in Athens, wrote about relics taken from Constantinople by French knights and referred to a cloth that was seen “with our own eyes” in Athens.

At this time the historical trail of the Image of Edessa disappears.

Then, in 1356, Geoffrey de Charny, a French knight and descendent of a famous knight of the Fourth Crusade, displayed a burial shroud that he claimed to be the burial cloth of Christ. That shroud is now called the Shroud of Turin.

Another interesting historical fact – images/paintings of Christ in full frontal view didn’t appear until after the discovery of the Shroud found in Edessa. The painting Christ Pantocrator Icon painted on the walls of St. Catherine’s Monastery in the Sinai. Photographs of the painting and the Shroud facial image were taken, and then grid lines were added in order to compare the facial features. Then without the gridlines, the photos were superimposed as shown to the left. It was found that they matched.
