The holy Sudarium of Oviedo is a funerary linen which was wrapped around the head of a crucified person a few minutes after his death. Researches show that the head was in a vertical position slightly bent forward and right. Then, it was moved by a foreign hand in order to control the blood which flowed from the nose. They put the head in supine position. The Man of the Sudarium suffered a great pulmonary oedema and lost more than one and a half litre of blood type AB as a consequence of the terminal process. According to the forensic haematology, there are more than 70 coincidences between the Sudarium of Oviedo and the Holy Shroud.
