Mr. Ian Wilson
Ian Wilson is a retired freelance author specializing in researching historical mysteries, particularly ones with a religious slant. He graduated in History from Magdalen College, Oxford University. After converting to the Catholic Church in 1972, he then wrote a book on the Turin Shroud. The book became a best-seller both in the UK and USA, was translated into nine languages, and spawned a TV documentary, Silent Witness, co-scripted by him, that won a BAFTA award. A later book Jesus: The Evidence was similarly a bestseller. In 1994 his Shakespeare: The Evidence, arguing that Shakespeare was a crypto-Catholic, was also successful. Ian Wilson lives in Brisbane, Australia.
“The Turin Shroud: New Facts and a New Historical Theory”
(This lecture will directly challenge the widely accepted 1988 carbon dating “verdict” that the Turin Shroud is a medieval fake. After a brief review of the Shroud image’s still unexplained photographic properties, its anatomical accuracies, its convincingness as a two-thousand-year-old textile, and the unsuitable location from which the carbon dating sample was taken, two hitherto overlooked mid-fourteenth century manuscripts will be presented shedding dramatic new light on the French knight Geoffroi de Charny, allegedly the Shroud’s first European owner)
Please do anything you can to offer your time for any of these events which a lot of good people spend a lot of their time organising and ultimately for the glory of God. As this Sunday's Gospel tells us - many are called but few are chosen.
