A full-size copy of the world-famous Shroud of Turin is coming to Derby Cathedral and will be on display from Saturday 9 March to Sunday 7 April 2024.

The Shroud of Turin exhibition includes a beautiful 15 foot replica image which is a photograph printed onto cotton by an American photographer, Barrie Schwortz, who was the official photographer at the STuRP (Shroud of Turin Research Project) examination of the Shroud in 1978.

One of the purposes of the exhibition is to show how brutal crucifixion really was and to tell the story of the crucifixion of Jesus. The exhibition includes original Roman nails, a replica whip and a spear. And there are information boards about art, history and the latest research on the Shroud.

There will be a talk by Pam Moon inside the Cathedral on Wednesday 13th March, at 18:30 which is free to attend.
