THE HOLY SHROUD OF OVIEDO

10

Deep in the vaults of the San Salvador Cathedral in Oviedo lies a holy relic of immense importance to Christians and historians alike….. the Holy Sudarium or Shroud of Oviedo.

This Holy Shroud is believed to be the cloth that was wrapped around the head of Jesus Christ after his death, similar to the Holy Shroud of Turin.

The Shroud has had an epic journey before arriving at its current location in Asturias. It was transported from Palestine in 614 AD to avoid destruction and eventually ended up in Asturias under the care of King Pelayo in 732 AD.

There is much mystery surrounding this Holy Shroud and Álvaro Blanco and his team have set about to explore it further and finally unravel the truths behind this intriguing artifact.

An exposition has been built around their findings and we where too curious not to make a video about it. We hope it sparks your curiosity like it did ours… Enjoy!

Thank you to Alvaro blanco, organizer of the exhibition, for his knowledge and amazing explanations. We hope you have great luck on your Journey Presenting the Holy Shroud to the world: Sábana Santa Exhibition.
