Scientists have placed the famed Turin Shroud to Christ’s time, between the 280 BC and AD 220, raising questions about whether the relic is more than a medieval hoax.

According to the Telegraph, a team of scientists from University of Padua analysed fibres from the shroud with infrared lights and also measured radiation intensity through wavelengths, the New York Post reported.

The new information has been published in a book The Mystery of the Shroud.
