The Review of Religions Shroud Conference 2017 - Mark Guscin


The Turin Shroud exhibition at Jalsa Salana UK hosted by The Review of Religions has become an international forum for academics and experts on The Shroud Of Turin. Expert guest speakers include team members that conducted the first in-depth scientific examination of the Shroud in 1978. The second guest speaker, Mark Guscin, obtained a first-class degree in Latin and Greek from the University of Manchester at the age of nineteen, and recently obtained his PhD in History from Royal Holloway, University of London, which was also admitted by the University of Oviedo in Spain as an equivalent PhD in Spain. Mark is currently an independent scholar and professional translator and interpreter in Latin, Spanish, Catalan, Galician, French, Portuguese and Italian. He has published various books related to medieval history and the Napoleonic Wars, as well as a prize-winning biography of Lady Hester Stanhope (in Spanish). He has also worked as a television presenter on the National Geographic Ancient X-Files. He is a translator and interpreter in the Spanish engineering company Duro Felguera, and runs his own translation agency. He has lived in Spain since 1986. Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Mark has authored The Tradition of the Image of Edessa, a study of the literature, paintings, icons and other aspects related to the Image of Edessa which “traces with erudition the long history of a Christian tradition known since the fifth century” according to Professor Miri Rubin of Queen Mary University of London.
