The Oviedo Sudarium (Christ's blood stained cloth)

by eugene.uk Online Now Jan 17, 2010 at 2:00 PM

Does anyone know whether the Sudarium of the Oviedo cathedral is on public display, or is it kept away from view? I will be in the area soon and would consider visiting Oviedo just to have a look, but only if it is on display for the general public. Just curious.

Thank you

    In my opinion, Oviedo is worth a visit regardless of whether or you can see the Sudarium. In addition to Good Friday, it is also displayed the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross on 14 September, and its octave on 21 September.

    Thank you all so much. I have been to Oviedo on several occasions but I had no idea the cathedral claimed to hold such a relic. I only found out recently while watching a programme on the Turin Shroud on TV. I just find it fascinating how people venerate such items, whether authentic or not. I will definitely try to organise a visit around Easter or September.

    Thanks again, you have been great help.

    Thanks Pedro.

    I do know Oviedo. I used to drive my dad to a well known eye clinic in the city (I am originally from Galicia, even though I have been living abroad for quite some time now). I totally agree with you, Oviedo is a cute little place.

    I will definitely try to visit at Easter or September.

    Thank you so much, all of you.
