Description
Through much of the Middle Ages the Shroud of Turin was guarded by the Templars, contends Barbara Frale, an Italian paleographer at the Vatican Secret Archives. Indeed, it was their possession of the Shroud—allegedly the burial cloth of Christ—and their supposed idolatry of it that was used against the Templars when they were charged with heresy. Frale follows the Templars from their inception as warrior-monks who protected pilgrims in the Holy Land to the height of their political and religious power, and their eventual dispersal on suspicion of blasphemy. Their story is entwined with that of the Shroud, which they believed would actually protect Christendom from doubt and heresy.
