Scully/The World Show

Guest: Princess Maria Gabriella of Savoy (#115)

Bob Scully converses with Princess Maria Gabriella of Savoy, historian emerita, who is particularly interested in the Shroud of Turin. The Shroud had belonged to her family ever since the 15th century, until her father, the last king of Italy, bequeathed it to the Vatican. She retraces the origins of the Shroud, and relates how the most venerated relic of Christianity was saved from the flames on more than one occasion, in a nearly miraculous fashion. She also describes the atmosphere and the emotions surrounding the last public display in Turin. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
