The Unknown Years Of Jesus (also called The Silent Years Of Jesus, The Lost Years Of Jesus, or The Missing Years Of Jesus) generally refers to the period of Jesus's life between his childhood and the beginning of his ministry, a period not described in the New Testament. The "Lost Years Of Jesus" concept is usually encountered in esoteric literature (where it at times also refers to his possible post-crucifixion activities) but is not commonly used in scholarly literature since it is assumed that Jesus was probably working as a carpenter in Galilee, at least some of the time with Joseph, from the age of 12 to 29. In the late medieval period, there appeared Arthurian legends that the young Jesus had been in Britain. In the 19th and 20th centuries theories began to emerge that between the ages of 12 and 29 Jesus had visited India, or had studied with the Essenes in the Judea desert. Mainstream Christian scholarship has generally rejected these theories and holds that nothing is known about this time period in the life of Jesus. The use of the "Lost Years" in the "Swoon Hypothesis", which proposes that Jesus did not die on the cross but rather fell unconscious ("swooned"), and was later revived in the tomb in the same mortal body, suggests that Jesus survived his crucifixion and continued his life, instead of ascended into Heaven with two angels as New Testament states. This, and the related view that he avoided crucifixion altogether, has given rise to several speculations about what happened to him in the supposed remaining years of his life, but these are not accepted by mainstream scholars either.
The Shroud Of Turin (Italian: Sindone di Torino), also known as the Holy Shroud (Italian: Sacra Sindone or Santa Sindone), is a length of linen cloth bearing the negative image of a man. Some describe the image as depicting Jesus of Nazareth and believe the fabric is the burial shroud in which he was wrapped after crucifixion. First mentioned in 1354, the shroud was denounced in 1389 by the local bishop of Troyes as a fake. Currently the Catholic Church neither formally endorses nor rejects the shroud, and in 2013 Pope Francis referred to it as an "icon of a man scourged and crucified". The shroud has been kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Turin, in northern Italy, since 1578. In 1988, radiocarbon dating established that the shroud was from the Middle Ages, between the years 1260 and 1390. All hypotheses put forward to challenge the radiocarbon dating have been scientifically refuted, including the medieval repair hypothesis, the bio-contamination hypothesis and the carbon monoxide hypothesis. The image on the shroud is much clearer in black-and-white negative-first observed in 1898-than in its natural sepia color. A variety of methods have been proposed for the formation of the image, but the actual method used has not yet been conclusively identified. The shroud continues to be intensely studied, and remains a controversial issue among scientists and biblical scholars. It has been argued by author Ian Wilson and others that the object venerated as the Mandylion from the 6th to the 13th centuries was in fact the Shroud of Turin, folded in four, and enclosed in an oblong frame so that only the face was visible. Wilson cites documents in the Vatican Library and the University of Leiden, Netherlands, which seem to suggest the presence of another image at Edessa. A 10th-century codex, Codex Vossianus Latinus Q 69 found by Gino Zaninotto in the Vatican Library contains an 8th-century account saying that an imprint of Christ's whole body was left on a canvas kept in a church in Edessa: it quotes a man called Smera in Constantinople: "King Abgar received a cloth on which one can see not only a face but the whole body".
The Holy Lance, also known as the Lance of Longinus (named after Saint Longinus), the Spear of Destiny, or the Holy Spear, is the lance that pierced the side of Jesus as he hung on the cross during his crucifixion. The lance (Greek: lonkhe) is mentioned in the Gospel of John, but not the Synoptic Gospels. To make sure that he was dead, a Roman soldier (named in extra-Biblical tradition as Longinus) stabbed him in the side: "One of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance, and immediately there came out blood and water." At least four major relics are claimed to be the Holy Lance or parts of it: in Rome beneath the dome of Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome; in Vienna displayed in the Imperial Treasury (Weltliche Schatzkammer, lit. "Worldly Treasure Room") at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Austria; in Vagharshapat (previously known as Echmiadzin), the religious capital of Armenia, in the monastery of Geghard; and the lance of Antioch which emerged from the Siege Of Antioch in 1098 and was lost by Raymond IV of Toulouse inl 1101, when it was lost during a battle in Asia Minor. Another lance has been preserved at Krakow, Poland, since at least the 13th century.
