Knights Templar Hid Shroud of Turin: Vatican

 (Newser) – The Knights Templar secretly cared for the Shroud of Turin after the Crusades for more than 100 years, the Vatican announced today, apparently clearing up the mystery of the shroud's lost years. The medieval order venerated the cloth, protecting it from heretical groups and initiating members by asking them to kiss the relic, which is said to bear the image of Jesus Christ on the cross, the Times of London reports.

The shroud vanished after Constantinople fell in 1204 during the Fourth Crusade, and only re-emerged in the mid-1300s, a Vatican researcher said. She solved the mystery by unearthing the testimony of a young Frenchman who had to kiss the cloth three times to join the Knights in 1287. King Philip of France and the church later disbanded the group amid charges of sexual immorality and corruption.

Carbon dating has already shown this object to be too young to be anyone's burial shroud in AD 33. In spite of a church fire that could have muddled the carbon 14 content, the shroud dates to around the late 13th century. I think the fact that the shroud is not Jesus’ burial garment is clear and the Church providing documents that are centuries old to build a history for the shroud does not preclude the commission of very old forgeries to try to substantiate the veracity of the shrouds origins.
