"Prestigious Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. Plans High-Tech Shroud
Exhibit" Here is some groundbreaking Shroud news:
On April 23, the following announcement was made from the podium at the National
Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C.:
“The Museum of the Bible is excited to propose a groundbreaking, high-tech, innovative
exhibition about the Shroud of Turin with a mission to explore its history, mysteries,
facets, and themes by utilizing state-of-the-art imaginative displays.”
The operative phrase is “excited to propose.”
In order for the Museum to produce what will be the most creative, high-tech Shroud
exhibition the world has ever seen, it will need to raise at least $2 million. News of the proposed exhibit first appeared on TownHall.com in a piece by Myra Adams that was later picked-up by Aleteia.
We are soliciting support from the national and international Shroud community
to help bring this extraordinary exhibition to life. All our efforts on behalf of the
Shroud will be enhanced by the attention this unique exhibit will attract.
