Witnesses to Mystery

Gorny explores the truth and historicity of the relics of Christ’s passion . . .

Witnesses to MysteryGorny
Grzegorz Gorny
Ignatius Press, 2013
336 pages, $34.95 hardcover

To create this fascinating volume, Gorny embarked on a two-year journey to seek the truth behind the relics associated with Christ’s passion. He and his photographer investigated a rich body of documentary evidence found in museums, archives and churches surrounding sacred objects believed to have been preserved since Jesus’ lifetime, exploring and collaborating with historians and scientists to verify the relics’ authenticity.

Relics investigated and photographed for this glorious book include the Cross, nails, crown of thorns, pillar of scourging, Christ’s tunic, the Veil of Manoppello, the Sudarium of Oviedo, the Shroud of Turin burial cloth and more.
