Pois é, precisely, which proposes the researcher of medieval art, Renaissance and 17th century, Prof. Dr. Jack Barnett, one of the most renowned scholars of the Shroud in Brazil.


From day 29 October, he minister five meetings, in São Paulo, where the relic will present not only as a mere religious and historical nature of object - whose influence helped shape the iconography of Jesus Christ -, but as something that transcends the sacred and explores both the artistic field, as the scientific.

There are more than 30 years, the researcher studied the shroud in order to explain why the Catholic relic is not a medieval building, as was proclaimed in 1988, after the examination result of carbon 14, and 2018, by researchers Liverpool John Moores University, no UK, and the University of Pavia, Italy, after performing experiments with human blood, mannequins and volunteers - although all the results have been challenged. For this, combined with the contributions of Religion and Science, it is based on artistic studies to deconstruct this statement of medieval building.
