The Shroud of Turin, the sacred cloth believed to had been used in wrapping the body of Jesus Christ after crucifixion, had significant amounts of substance only present in patients who had undergone severe multiple traumas according to the most recent studies.
Experts had disclosed that the Shroud of Turin shows signs of blood from a victim of persecution - evidences that further sustain the claims it was used in the burial of Jesus.
The linen cloth, believed to have been used to wrap the body of Jesus after crucifixion, contains 'nanoparticles' which are not typical of the blood of a healthy person.
The blood contained high levels of substances called creatinine and ferritin, found in patients who suffered forceful traumas like torture.
"The tiny particles reveal great suffering of a victim wrapped up in the funeral cloth" said Elvio Carlino, a researcher at the Institute of Crystallography in Bari, Italy.
"These particles had a peculiar structure, size and distribution," Giulio Fanti, a University of Padua professor, added.
"Hence, the presence of these biological nanoparticles found during our experiments point to a violent death for the man wrapped in the Turin Shroud." Professor Fanti said.
The Shroud of Turin measures around three metres by one metre and contains a faintly stained image of a man which Christians believe depicts Jesus.
It has been subject to intense scientific study to ascertain its authenticity.
These recent findings now serves as empirical evidences that dispute the claims that the shroud was forged in the Medieval era.
The shroud is currently in exhibit at St John the Baptist Cathedral in Turin.
Pope Francis paused in silent prayer before the Shroud during his visit to the city in 2015.
