What is the history of the Shroud in the Greek-Byzantine Period?

The history of an image-bearing cloth, known variously as the Image of Edessa and the Mandylion, when considered in the context of the Shroud of Turin, clearly demonstrates that these artifacts are one.  Seven obvious observations of the Shroud that is in Turin today serve as keys to early records that establish that the Turin Shroud is the same image-bearing cloth of ancient historical records. Those observations are:

  1. the size of the cloth
  2. very faint images of a man
  3. apparent bloodstains
  4. burn holes more commonly known as the poker holes
  5. the weave of the cloth
  6. particular creases in the fabric
  7. two images that look like flowers with petals
