Product Overview

"Intriguing and thought-provoking, "Murder at Golgotha" amounts to a latter-day "Cold Case" episode on a centuries-old event that has changed the lives of millions throughout the world."
"The most definitive recent study of the historical relic."
---"The Dallas Morning News "on "The Shroud of Turin"
"Wilson's outstanding study must surely be the most complete yet undertaken of the subject."
---"Washington"" Post" on "The Shroud of Turin"
"If you want a beautifully illustrated account of the sort of evidence that can be got from papyri, textual criticism, archaeology, and grammar concerning the founder of Christianity, you will find it in Wilson."
---"The Spectator "on "Jesus: The Evidence"
"Murder at Golgotha "approaches Jesus' crucifixion from the perspective of a crime scene investigator: What do we know is fact? What can be historically documented? What can we deduce may have happened?
Taking the popular "CSI" television dramas as inspiration, "Murder at Golgotha "is a direct reaction to Mel Gibson's much talked about movie "The Passion of the Christ." Ian Wilson carefully assesses what can be known about Jesus' trial and crucifixion, as well as where art and the movies have gone astray in depicting them. He systemically deploys eyewitness testimony (that embodied in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), archaeology, history, and medical and forensic findings to unravel the truth surrounding the most famous murder in history.
Ian Wilson is a historian and writer whose many books include "The Shroud of Turin, Jesus: The Evidence,""" "Shakespeare: The Evidence, "and "The Blood and the Shroud." He lives with his wife, Judith Wilson, inQueensland, Australia.
