To review the Collegamento pro Sindone Index or to select an article to read, just click on the appropriate link or title below.

Also, you can click here to visit the Collegamento pro Sindone Website. Presented in Italian and English, this beautiful website includes many scientific, theologic and historical articles as well as photographs of the Cathedral and Chapel, a map of geographical areas related to the Shroud, an illustrated Shroud history, an annotated photographic map of the Shroud, links to other Shroud websites and much more. Created and maintained by Maurizio Marinelli, it has grown into one of the most important Shroud websites on the Internet.

The site includes a link to the Marinelli Collection's massive listing of Scientific Articles on the Collegamento's website. This list contains hundreds of entries and is an excellent resource for Shroud researchers when used in conjunction with the "Shroud Booklist" on this website and other information found on the Internet. I am also proud to report that there is now an Italian Translation of the article I presented at the June 1998 Turin Symposium, "The Role of the Internet In The Future of Shroud Research," as well as an English Version on the Collegamento's site.

Special thanks are extended to Emanuela and Maurizio Marinelli, Ilona Farkas, Silvio Diana and Fr. Luigi Fossati for their contributions of time and energy in making this page possible and to Simona Marinelli for many of the English translations.
