And you can also view every previous year's Website News pages at the links below: Forty years ago today, on October 8, 1978, the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) team began their historic, first ever in-depth scientific examination of the Shroud of Turin in a makeshift "laboratory" in the Royal Palace of Turin.The examination took place over a period of five days and nights, from October 8 through 13, 1978.This update also brings you ten more issues of Rex Morgan's Shroud News, a feature article and beautiful photographic essay by our dear friend Aldo Guerreschi on the newly restored and reopened Guarini Chapel in Turin, many new books, papers, articles, videos and a few surprises. Here is the Update Table of Contents: The above photograph shows Ron London and Bill Mottern setting up their low power x-ray machine, the same device that was at least in part responsible for the seizing of all of STURP's equipment by Italian customs upon its arrival in Italy back in 1978.The wooden crate that housed the x-ray machine had a radiation sticker on the outside, and that apparently raised enough concern to cause the customs officials to seize everything and refuse to release it upon our arrival.It also includes a transcript of the Eulogy presented at his funeral on September 1, 2018 by Shroud Science Group member Massimo Paris.Here is the link to the official Paul Maloney Obituary and a link to the obituary we included on the STERA, Inc.
In spite of the pressure and stressful circumstances, everyone pulled together, worked as a team and we got the job done!
Paul was one of the most respected Shroud scholars in the world and the news of his passing came as a great shock to the Shroud community.
Within hours the comments poured in from Shroud scholars and researchers around the world.
Many of the comments were from the online Shroud Science Group, of which Paul was a truly valued member, so I have included them in this memorial.
In fact, there were so many comments that I have compiled them into a separate document titled, Paul Maloney Memorial.
