Man of the Shroud Exhibits on the Shroud of Turin with Guest Speakers Chris Knabenshue, Phillip Wiebe, and Barry Schwartz

Sunday of The Triumph of Orthodoxy

The Christos Aχειροποίητα or ‘Christ-not-made-by-hand’, a much revered 12th century Russian Orthodox icon, celebrates the miracle in which Jesus healed King Abgar of Edessa by sending him an image of his face imprinted on a piece of linen cloth. Such an icon is said to have been “written” by the word of God, not painted by a person.
