Walter M. Abbott, S.J., editor of the Documents of Vatican II



“The book’s critical approach to the questions engendered by the shroud is excellent. In particular, Dr. Lavoie’s recognition that the radiocarbon dating polemic is a question of accuracy and not precision is most prescient.”

Alan Adler, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Chemistry, Western Connecticut State University



“Dr. Lavoie’s narrative is intriguing. The discussion of the burial rites of Judaism is informed and illuminating.”

Jacob Neusner, Jewish scholar, Distinguished Research Professor of Religious Studies,

University of South Florida and Bard College



“The solid medical research on the blood marks leaves no doubt that there was a crucified man under this cloth.  Dr. Lavoie has made a most remarkable discovery:  The image is not that of a body in burial but that of an upright man.”

Stephen J. Camer, M.D., Chief of Surgery

New England Baptist Hospital
