The Sign by Thomas de Wesselow finally solves Christianity's greatest mystery 'The thinking man's Dan Brown' Sunday Times How did Christianity really begin? In this powerful and controversial book, art historian Thomas de Wesselow reveals that the answer to this puzzle lies in one of the most mysterious images in the world - the Shroud of Turin. Re-examining the Shroud and New Testament texts, he argues that the traditional Christian view - that the apostles were inspired by seeing Jesus raised from the dead - is a profound misconception. Using scientific, archaeological and historical evidence, The Sign demonstrates that the Shroud is the actual burial-cloth of Jesus. That haunting image - which is a natural stain - holds the key to the greatest mystery in human history. This astonishing book will appeal to readers around the world and is a must for fans of The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, Inferno by Dan Brown and Diarmaid MacCulloch's A History of Christianity. 'Very intriguing' Mail on Sunday 'A fascinating account of the Shroud as an image' BBC History Magazine 'Thorough, well-researched and fair-minded. Persuasive... much more than just an addition to the canon of Shroud literature' Irish Times Thomas de Wesselow earned his MA and PhD at London's Courtauld Institute, researching the controversial Guidoriccio fresco in Siena, before becoming a Scholar at the British School in Rome where he worked on another of the great mysteries of Italian art history, the Assisi Problem. He has written on a number of famous Renaissance pictures whose meanings have hitherto defied analysis, including Botticelli's Primavera and Titian's Sacred and Profane Love. Since 2007 he has been researching this book full-time. He is 40 years old and he lives in Cambridge.

"In ancient Egypt, wrapping sacred objects, including mummified bodies, in layers of cloth was a ritual that lay at the core of Egyptian society. Yet in the modern world, attention has focused instead on unwrapping all the careful arrangements of linen textiles the Egyptians had put in place. This book breaks new ground by looking at the significance of textile wrappings in ancient Egypt, and at the way their unwrapping has shaped the way we think about the Egyptian past. Wrapping mummified bodies and divine statues in linen reflected the cultural values attached to this textile, with implications for understanding gender, materiality and hierarchy in Egyptian society. Unwrapping mummies and statues similarly reflects the values attached to Egyptian antiquities in the West, where the colonial legacies of archaeology, egyptology and racial science still influence how Egypt appears in museums and the press. From the tomb of Tutankhamun to the Arab Spring, Unwrapping Ancient Egypt raises critical questions about the deep-seated fascination with this culture - and what that fascination says about our own."--

What does the so-called Secret Gospel of Mark and modern day Shroud of Turin have in common? Breaking new ground in both sindonology (the study of the Shroud) and New Testament studies, this book explores the mystery behind the lost gospel and the mysterious story of a figure wrapped in linen that it describes. When this controversial text is reinserted back into the biblical storyline, it ties together a number of complex themes that ultimately serve to reveal the burial/resurrection shroud of Jesus. Secret Mark may thus be the missing link in a long line of evidence pointing toward the Shroud of Turin's first century origin and the fallacy of the cloth and its image being a medieval forgery. Paradoxically, critical scholarship's own methods bring to light one of the central relics of Christian faith that may well be the only material artifact of the historical Jesus. Only by reading non-canonical, apocryphal scripture can the Shroud be more readily perceived in the symbolic codes of the New Testament gospel. This "director's cut" of the Gospel of Mark is sure to fascinate and enthrall anyone interested in the historical Jesus and the origins of Christianity both believers and non-believers alike.

There is now no published theory to explain the enigma of the Turin Shroud that fits the known evidence. Many people want the shroud to be proof of Christ's mission, but Knight and Lomas prove that it is not. The truth behind the shroud is an epic story of pride, greed, powerlust and suffering. It had been prophesised that the Messiah would return shortly after 1230AD. Jacques de Molay was born in 1244, beacame a Templar in 1265 and Grand Master om 1297; the Templars regarded themselves as the guardians of the secret teachings of Jesus. In 1307 Molay was arrested at the instigation of the Pope, who was alarmed at the spread of this influence - and was crucified. Using the latest scientific techniques , the authors prove that the shroud Molay was wrapped in is the one now known as the Turin Shroud.
