Another round of testing on the Shroud of Turin is being considered. Some called what many believe is the burial cloth of Jesus a medieval hoax after radiocarbon testing in 1988 determined the shroud to be from between 1260 and 1390. However, re-examination of the 1988 data has led to questions about the precision of the study and new calls for testing. In 1981 testing showed bloodstains on the cloth were composed of hemoglobin and also tested positive for serum albumin. The calls for new testing come as the Museum of the Bible prepares for an exhibition on the subject.
