We arrived a week prior to the scheduled start of our examination (while the Shroud was still on public display) in order to unpack, set up and calibrate all our instruments and equipment so we would be fully prepared when the Shroud was brought to us.
Unfortunately, it took five and a half days before the equipment was finally released so we had to work around the clock for the remaining 36 hours to prepare everything for our testing.
However, in 2009 the ownership of this website and all of my Shroud photographs and other materials was legally transferred to our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, STERA, Inc., an organization dedicated to educating people about the Shroud and archiving online the most important Shroud materials for future research.
Since we provide the information for educational purposes and are effectively the single largest Shroud resource on the internet, we believe we now fall well within the Fair Usage clause of the copyright law.
Based on those facts, I decided to publish all twenty of the papers in this update and have simply renamed the "Bibliography of STURP's Published Papers" page: STURP'S Published Papers.
This update also brings you ten more issues of Rex Morgan's Shroud News, a feature article and beautiful photographic essay by our dear friend Aldo Guerreschi on the newly restored and reopened Guarini Chapel in Turin, many new books, papers, articles, videos and a few surprises. Here is the Update Table of Contents: The above photograph shows Ron London and Bill Mottern setting up their low power x-ray machine, the same device that was at least in part responsible for the seizing of all of STURP's equipment by Italian customs upon its arrival in Italy back in 1978.
The wooden crate that housed the x-ray machine had a radiation sticker on the outside, and that apparently raised enough concern to cause the customs officials to seize everything and refuse to release it upon our arrival.
In commemoration of that historic event, we have been celebrating the anniversary year by including some special materials in each of our regular website updates and culminating with this Special STURP Update today.
After forty years, we felt it was time to publish ALL twenty of STURP's original, peer-reviewed papers, so they are now available to everyone (for the first time on the internet) here on
