Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book From the Mandylion of Edessa to the Shroud of Turin: The Metamorphosis and Manipulation of a Legend presents the table of contents, acknowledgements, and a list of illustrations. The book focuses on the critical examination of the arguments that put forward by those who believe that the identification of the Shroud of Turin with the Edessean image is proven beyond doubt. The analysis of a number of historical, literary and iconographic sources allows verification of the possibility that the characteristics of the Shroud of Turin are compatible and comparable to those handed down about the image of Edessa.

Keywords: Edessean image; Mandylion; Shroud of Turin
