Worshipped in a relentlessly secret manner, and known in its intimate nature by only a handful of the order’s officials, the swathe of fabric was kept in the central treasury of the Knights Templar, who were known for their expertise in the field of relics. In an age of doctrinal confusion, the shroud might have represented for the Knights Templar a powerful antidote against the spread of heresy.
By tracing faint clues concerning the shroud’s movements during medieval times, Barbara Frale reaches back into the centuries and explores complex hypotheses on the shroud’s origins and offers a new viewpoint on this controversial relic.

This is one ditzy broad.
What would have made The Templars and the Shroud of Christ better?
Someone who knew more about the shroud then I do.
Would you ever listen to anything by Barbara Frale again?
For comedy effect only.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Not all that bad so no comment
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Templars and the Shroud of Christ?
Rewrite the entire C-14 presentation.
Any additional comments?
I am convinced the shroud is first century and is forensically exactly as biblically described. Further, pollen and microscopic mineral annalysis shows Springtime in Jerusalem.
I also suspect, as does the aurhor, it is the exact same article well documented as the Mandylion of Constantinople and was plundered during the sack of that city by disgruntled Tenplars on failed crusade.
If you are orherwise well versed in this matter there is good reason to subject yourself to this weird presentation. Some good stuff on the Templar persecution trials and other tid bits. But know the C-14 was a royal botch job right up their with Piltdown Man. This woman is clueless on the issue.
