Founded 23 Dec 1959, on the wake of the Cultores Sanctae Sindonis, and following the approval in the 1920's of the Archbishop of Turin, Cardinal Maurilio Fossati. The Centre arranged a documentary exhibition (the first nucleus of the Museum of the Shroud) and a library. Following intensification of activity during the latest expositions, some members joined the Commission for the Public Display of the Shroud and contributed on organizational, technical and scientific levels. The Centre built the new seat of the Museum of the Holy Shroud into the crypt of the 18th century church of the Holy Shroud, inaugurated 15 Apr 1998, along with the Public Display.
