I know the first edition will include, among other things, the first published fruits of Ian Wilson's extended research into the de Charney family and the first expositions in Lirey.
I understand it will lead to some revisions to some long established assumptions.
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.
This update includes Issue #77, June 1993 through Issue #84, August 1994 with articles by such notable Shroud scholars as Ian Wilson, Alan D. Schwalbe, Brother Bruno Bonnet-Eymard, Robert Halisey, Remi Van Haelst, Emanuela Marinelli and Orazio Petrosillo, Rev. We are pleased to report that the British Society for the Turin Shroud page of the website has been updated and the latest June 2017 Issue No. This issue includes several in-depth research articles starting with by Ian Wilson and much more.
This issue also marks the last issue from current Editor Hugh Farey, who is retiring from the position he has held since December 2013 and handing it over to long time BSTS member, David Rolfe.
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.
On July 19-22, 2017, an International Conference on the Shroud of Turin - "Seeking Solutions to the Mysteries of the Shroud," was held at the TRAC Center in Pasco, Washington.
David is best known in Shroud circles for his films on the Shroud which include - included Prof.
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.
Each item carries a posting date indicating when it first went online.
The most recent update appears at the top of the page.
