Since then, the questioning of the authenticity by Pierre d’Arcis had been understood by the faithful to be no more than part of schismatic politics of the 14 century in Avignon, thus demonstrating beyond doubt that the claims of the medieval prelates in the late 14th century had no other intent than to control the emotional capital invested in the cloth.As we well know, this battle for the minds and not the hearts of the faithful have never stopped.

Following this, another possibility would be to perform so-called next generation DNA-sequencing method.

This would be especially interesting since it might identify the mitochondrial DNA of the blood, which has a very high mutation rate, making it a marker, which can be used to uniquely identify a specific human being and his and hers close maternal relations.

Later in the 1980s the Turin Research project continued the work, which resulted in the seminal article by William Meacham in Current Anthropology in 1983.

[2] At this point, the main results were the identification of the 49 species of pollen of which 13 were peculiar to the Negev and Dead Sea area.

William Meacham and others have nevertheless argued that these studies were carried out “since the dating was poorly planned, marred by petty rivalries, and scientifically flawed”.

The basic critique was based on the fact that the shroud had obviously undergone reparation during the centuries and the documentation of where the samples had been taken from was not conclusive.

A further 20 plants were assigned to the Anatolian Steppes, while 16 species were found in northern Europe.

Examination of the cloth identified the weave as a herringbone twill, commonly used in silks in Antiquity.

Another feature was the find of microscopic fibres of cotton, indicating that it had been woven on a loom used for weaving cotton.

Further, the thread had been spun by hand indicating a production of the cloth ante c. This – and much more evidence – led to the famous conclusion reached by Meacham in 1983, by which the authenticity of the shroud of Turin was deemed to be highly probable.

It is in view of this – and the particular character of the relic – that a series of scientific and archaeological investigations have been carried out since the beginning of 1900 [3].
