The CIELT Symposium in Nice
On Monday and Tuesday 12 and 13 May the French Shroud group CIELT held its Third International Scientific Symposium on the Shroud at the Hotel Westminster Concord, on the Promenade des Anglais, Nice, France. Among those billed as giving presentations were Isabel Piczek, speaking on the Shroud's negativity; Dr. John Jackson on the seemingly aberrant radiocarbon date; Professor Dan Scavone, on the connection between the Edessa image and the Grail; Mark Guscin, on the sudarium of Oviedo; Professor Pierluigi Baima Bollone, on the purported lepton coin over the man of the Shroud's left eyelid; Remi van Haelst on the copy of the Shroud dated 1516, preserved in the Church of St. Gommaire, Lierre, Belgium, and Professor Bruno Barberis on the Turin 'Centro's plans for the 1998 exposition. A trip to Turin was scheduled for Wednesday May 14, enabling those attending to view at first hand at least something of the damage from the recent fire. A full report of this Symposium will appear in the next Newsletter.
