Shroud of Turin on display

The Holy Shroud of Turin — a linen cloth said to have been placed on Jesus at the time of his burial — will be on display at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, from April 10-May 23, 2010.

The cloth moved around Europe until it arrived in Turin in 1578.

Since 1983 it’s gone on several displays.

More than 2 million visitors are expected in Turin.

Visit the cathedral's Web site to prebook a visit beginning in December.
