Christ’s features have been worshipped by millions of devoted Christians, and have been the subject of study for many scientists and researchers alike, who have always questioned their historical value.

Beginning in the 1st century, many different “archeropite” (miraculous) depictions have followed one another. Among these, the most famous is for sure the Holy Shroud of Turin.

And yet, for centuries before it, the Christian community has been worshipping another famous relic, the Veil of Veronica, which is still to this day at the centre of a historical-theological mystery.

In this incredible documentary, which comprises the most complete and accurate investigation regarding Jesus’s features, we have studied and compared the Shroud, Veronica’s Veil and the important relic of the Sudarium of Oviedo, discovering incredible connections between them.
