Relics associated with Jesus – such as the Shroud of Turin, Holy Grail and Lance of Longinus – are revered by many of the faithful but are a perennial target for sceptics. Nickell presents the evidence on all sides, reporting the historical traditions associated with these objects and describing the range of techniques used by investigators to track down their origins. The final chapter follows the controversy surrounding the supposed ossuary of Jesus’ brother James, pronounced a fake in 2003.
