Because I was asked about the Mandylion I had a good look around and found this piece of information: "Citing the site of the Vatican: In the center of the exhibition one will see the MANDYLION of the chapel REDEMPTORIS MATER. This priceless piece of cloth with a picture of Christ is shown to a large audience for the first time." The following link will take you to the official site of the Vatican. Then click EXHIBITION!
My supplement: It is supposed to be the oldest picture of Christ (2nd century). But even big encyclopedias don't offer that much information about the Mandylion. Just the internet was helpful!
|The photo of a picture of the 'Turiner Grabtuch'. You're not allowed to take pictures of the original Mandylion.||This sculpture stands in front of the pavilion.|
|The whole pavilion from the outside.||You can buy souvenirs and ask for information.|
