We start with an important comment from the STERA, Inc.
Board of Directors and the introduction of a new page on the website dedicated to the recent International Shroud Conference in Pasco, Washington.
That decision was made solely by the Board of Directors.
In the form that Giulio completed, he stated that, "The material will be returned AS it will be furnished without impact of any kind.
As we have done with many conferences in the past, we have also created a new Pasco Conference page here on
In fact, the page is already available although it is unfinished and still under construction.
Christopher Ramsey, Head of Oxford's Radio Carbon Center, who conceded, memorably, that in the light of the new evidence and the lack of any substantive explanation for the Shroud's image, the C14 should be looked at again. David shared a platform with me recently, along with Bruno Barberis from Turin and former BSTS editor, Mark Guscin, at the Shroud Exhibit at the Jalsa Salana event hosted in the UK by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community's publication,. David's intention, subject to maintaining subscription levels, is to continue with the printed edition of the Newsletter, which will remain available to its subscribers who will also have access to a new BSTS online forum.Check here for important announcements and other Shroud of Turin Website news.This page will be updated whenever new page additions, articles and other resources are added to the site.There will also be a review by Hugh Farey of the new comprehensive publication from John Jackson, a new article from Paolo di Lazzaro and also an article from Arif Khan, who has curated the Ahmadiyya Community's Shroud exhibition and conference in the UK for the last three years and brings an Islamic perspective to the subject.The BSTS has a proud history and I hope as many of you as possible will continue to support it.
The event was sponsored by Mark Antonacci and his Test the Shroud Foundation and was organized and managed by Robert Rucker (and family).
