This is the story of the Sudarium of Oviedo, an ancient bloodstained cloth believed to have covered the head of Jesus of Nazareth after his crucifixion. The author traces the known history of the linen and presents the conclusions of EDICES, the investigative team that has been studying the cloth since 1989. Bennett discusses the cultural significance of the crucifixion and blood in the context of first-century Jerusalem and demonstrates the significance of John 20:5-7, as analyzed by some of the most important Biblical scholars of the world. The book contains twenty pages of color photographs.
Janice Bennett presents convincing evidence that The Holy Chalice of Valencia is the Holy Grail of medieval legend that was venerated by monks in the Monastery of San Juan de la Peña in the Spanish Pyrenees. According to the tradition of Aragón, the agate cup of the Holy Chalice was sent to Spain by St. Laurence, a Spaniard who martyred on a gridiron during the Valerian persecution in Rome in 258 AD.
The author acquaints the reader with the enthralling story of the Holy Chalice, the renowned relic that embarked from the Last Supper on an amazing pilgrimage that ended in the Cathedral of Valencia, an odyssey characterized by danger, greed, martyrdom and fire. Includes 20 pages of color images.
