vanishedone commented on the word sindonologist
According to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sindonology#The_controversy σινδων is 'the word used in the Gospel of Mark to describe the type of cloth that Joseph of Arimathea bought to use as Jesus' burial cloth', so perhaps they roam Arimathea.

That's what I thought too, yarb--but look at this.I wonder whether the skies are shroudy all day in Turin.
I love this page.
yarb commented on the word sindonologist
I took the citation to imply that sindonologists are just that, rt: scholars of all things shroudy, as interested in your common or garden variety shroud as in your fancy relics.
I wonder whether there are words to describe scholars of other shrouds?
Great word!Just once, though, I'd like some medieval people to come back and show us how they anticipated photography, say, or give us the cure for cancer, or something. Just to prove they weren't as stupid as they're always being made out to be.Or, you know, maybe they were.

'Shroud of Turin's Authenticity Probed Anew' (discovery.com): 'Shroud scholars, known as sindonologists, have always argued that no medieval forger could either have produced such an accurate fake or anticipated the invention of photography.'
