I'm not sure if I believe this is actually a name written into the Shroud or not, but it is interesting to me that scientists refute the claim that it could actually be the burial shroud of Christ without even considering the historical accounts of Jesus being taken down from the cross by St. Joseph of Arimathea.  Yes, historically the bodies were left on the cross to decompose but a written account of one instance where the rules were bent has to be considered.

On the spiritual path somewhere between the Simpsons and St. Theophan the Recluse, but I still can't see the Springfield city limits sign yet.

I believe that scientists don't refute the claim based on the historical anomaly of the burial of Christ, but simply on the alleged age of the cloth.

Supposedly, carbon dating has shown the Shroud to be no more than 700-800 years old.

One comment was that the piece that they tested might have been the repair work that was done after one of the fires the Shroud survived.  I also read somewhere that the image of the face can also be seen from the reverse side.
