Antero Frias Moreira presented "The Shroud of Turin in the Third Millennium" where he focused on debunking the 1988 radiocarbon tests and presented important 21st century scientific possibilities and Sister Maria Paula, a pioneer Portuguese religious woman in Shroud studies who made a personal testimony on her involvement with the Shroud.

According to Maria, "..Centro has a modest webpage with blog ( that provides some reliable information in the Portuguese language and is updated from time to time whenever a relevant sindonologic event happens iin our country.

The international event included speakers and attendees from around the world, including Australia, Canada, England, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Panama, Spain and the United States.

More than 160 attendees sat through full days of presentations on a wide variety of topics. Louis Conference Website (which includes a public Discussion Forum) is still online and will remain active for at least another year, the organizers decided to have the conference materials permanently archived here on Shroud.com, so we have created a new St. We have included links to most of the papers and presentations that were made, as well as links to abstracts, photos and video clips (coming soon thanks to Russ Breault) and will continue to add more as they become available.

Each Library "Gateway Page" listed below covers a specific area of Shroud information.

A description of what is on each page is provided below, along with a direct link to the page itself.

Many Gateway Pages include secondary links to articles, images and other websites.

Most of these important secondary links are also included below, so you can bypass the Gateway Page if you wish and go to the item of your choice directly from the Website Library.

This conference was organized by the Centro Espaol de Sindonologia (CES), which is also celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year.
