The Face of God: The Shroud of Turin and Orthodoxy
Dr. Corrado Altomare, St. Gregory Palamas Orthodox Church
Dr. Altomare is a subdeacon of St. Gregory Palamas Orthodox Church (OCA), Glen Gardner, NJ and lectured on the forensic science behind the Shroud of Turin and its relation to the Holy Mandylion. Educated in zoology and as a medical doctore (Genoa, ITaly), his interest in the Holy Shroud was sparked by a visit to Turin in the 1970’s when a rare public exposition had taken place. He has since that time participated in several international scientific congresses on the study of sindonology (Study of the Shroud) and has lectured extensively on the topic.
