M. Flury Lemberg on the Restoration

The 2002 "Restoration" is very controversial. Many scientists believe that not only was it not necessary but that it eliminated quite a number of research directions by destroying the evidence. In some ways it "cleaned up" the shroud, but at the expense of much material and much evidence of pollens, dust, folds, as well as the provenance of material from the 1532 fire which will now always have doubt cast upon it if it is used subsequently for additional C14 dating.
