Pope Benedict XVI venerates the Shroud of Turin, believed to be Jesus' burial cloth.
CNN's Diana Magnay reports on the holy relic that is being publicly displayed in Turin for the first time since 2002.
The shroud of Turin, which some Christians believe is Jesus Christ's burial cloth, went on public display Saturday for the first time since it was restored in 2002.
Researchers said Wednesday for the first time they have found what they believe to be pieces of a burial shroud from the time of Jesus.
An Italian scientist says he has reproduced one of the world's most famous Catholic relics, the Shroud of Turin, to support his belief it is a medieval fake, not the cloth Jesus was buried in.
