As I mentioned previously in my blog, Germans and Italians have dominated the study and promotion of the Holy Face of Manoppello, at least until recently. And certainly without the several websites which they so lovingly have produced, very little information would be available.
So I feel greatly obligated to give credit to them.
First of all to the official website of the Capuchin Friars Santuario del Volto Santo in Manoppello (Shrine or Sanctuary of the Holy Face) www. voltosanto.it which has information in Italian, German, English and Spanish. It is essential reading for the development of a correct understanding of the Holy Face as well as for a chronological review of the activities of the last few years at the Shrine, including the visit of Pope Benedict XVI on September 1, 2006
Also the website www.voltosanto.com, produced in Germany, which has some English material, but is noted above all for the beautiful and exquisite photography of the Holy Face of Manoppello, as well as the Church, Altar and countryside of Manoppello. Click on bildergalerie to arrive at this photography.
Another German website with some English material is www.volto-santo.com. Here you will find a wonderful gallery of works of art depicting the Holy Face as well as a definitely inspiring comparison of the Face on the Holy Shroud of Turin to that of the Holy Face of Manoppello.
Click on bilder to see this gallery. On the home page of this website is a link to an incredible, almost unbelievable video on Youtube, produced in Poland it seems, showing the Resurrection of Jesus as the linchpin and catalyst for the production of the images on the two cloths of Turin and Manoppello.
