That is wonderful.
Ginnie Hart: I haven't seen many of them, Michael, but when I see one (I think all have been in Germany thus far), I really pay attention. Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: LOL, Elaine. Makes sense to me. grin

"Get your genuine souvenir Shroud here!"
Ginnie Hart: I'd love to know how many of them there are, Ray. The few I've seen thus far have been in Germany.

A fine carving Ginnie, and rather unusual.
Ginnie Hart: I have seen just a handful of these shrouds, Chad, all in Germany. It does make you wonder!

A nice image shrouded in mystery Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Chris. I have seen only a handful of these, all in Germany. After all the fame of the Shroud or Turin, I'd love to know the history of this.

This is wonderful. Ray makes a point and you too with how many Shrouds there are. Still this is a wonderful piece of art.
Ginnie Hart: The only ones I remember seeing were all in Germany while on our river cruise, MLMA. I'd love to know more about them, especially in the context of the famous Shroud of Turin. Bedankt.

Bien vu

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, JP.
Very beautiful representation of the Holy Shroud
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. I haven't seen many of these...and only in Germany. I will start paying better attention wherever I go, in case I find more.
It would make a good souvenir tea towel Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It wouldn't surprise me if someone has already come up with that idea, Bill. Dear, dear me!
What a wonderful presentation Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard.

Veil of St. Veronica:
"The final form of the Western legend recounts that Saint Veronica from Jerusalem encountered Jesus along the Via Dolorosa on the way to Calvary. When she paused to wipe the blood and sweat (Latin sudor) off his face with her veil, his image was imprinted on the cloth. The event is commemorated by the Sixth Station of the Stations of the Cross. According to some versions, Veronica later traveled to Rome to present the cloth to the Roman Emperor Tiberius and the veil possesses miraculous properties, being able to quench thirst, cure blindness, and sometimes even raise the dead.

The story is not recorded in its present form until the Middle Ages and for this reason, is unlikely to be historical. Rather, its origins are more likely to be found in the story of the image of Jesus associated with the Eastern Church known as the Mandylion or Image of Edessa, coupled with the desire of the faithful be able to see the face of their Redeemer. During the fourteenth century it became a central icon in the Western Church – in the words of art historian Neil Macgregor – “From [the 14th Century] on, wherever the Roman Church went, the Veronica would go with it.” (Wikipedia) - The veil of Turin (I once saw it depicted) is a special theme.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine, for this added information. Very helpful!
