  • Description

    ITALIAN SCULPTOR AND ANATOMY EXPERT, PROFESSOR LORENZO FERRI, HAS, AFTER 38 YEARS OF RESEARCH, CONSTRUCTED A LIFE-SIZE WORK REVEALS NEW FACTS ABOUT THE HEIGHT OF CHRIST AND ABOUT THE CRUCIFIXION.

    THE PROFESSOR SAYS THAT JESUS WAS NOT OF AVERAGE HEIGHT, AS GENERALLY THOUGHT, BUT WAS OVER SIX FEET (ABOUT 1.8 METRES) TALL AND THAT HE COULD NOT HAVE HUNG FROM THE CROSS BY NAILS ALONE BUT MUST HAVE HAD SOME ADDITIONAL SUPPORT.

    TO HELP HIM WITH HIS INVESTIGATIONS THE PROFESSOR WAS GIVEN ACCESS TO THE VATICAN REPRODUCTIONS OF THE HOLY SHROUD, IN WHICH CHRIST WAS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN WRAPPED FOR BURIAL.

    PROFESSOR FERRI REACHED HIS CONCLUSIONS AFTER BUILDING A MODEL OF JESUS' BODY AS HE WOULD HAVE LAIN IN THE SHROUD. THEN, BY ADVANCED PHOTOGRAPHIC METHODS, HE TRANSFERRED THE IMPRINT OF CHRIST'S BODY TO A CLEAR SHEET OF PLASTIC.

    THE HOLY SHROUD HAS BEEN KEPT IN TURIN FOR NEARLY 400 YEARS AND THE PROFESSOR WAS ALLOWED TO WORK WITH PHOTOGRAPHS OF IT WHICH SHOWED IMPRINTS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN MADE BY THE CHEMICAL REACTION OF THE MYRRH AND ALOES ON THE CLOTH AGAINST THE BODY.
