The origins of the Shroud of Turin and its image are the subject of intense debate among scientists, theologians, historians and researchers.

Some insist that the shroud is the cloth placed on the body of Jesus Christ during the time of his burial, and that the face image found on the cloth is the Holy Face of Jesus while others contend that the religious artifact postdates the Crucifixion of Jesus by more than a millennium. Both sides of the argument use science and historical documents to make their case.
