Italy    SHROUD BOOKINGS ON NET
Pilgrims and tourists eager to see the famed Shroud of Turin can now make reservations on the world wide web.
    The shroud, which many believe is Jesus' burial cloth, goes on display in Turin for two months from 26 August in honour of the Holy Year.
    Organisers said that bookings are available on the internet at
www.giubileo.piemonte.it
    The linen cloth went on display for the first time in two decades last year and 2.4 million people including Pope John Paul II viewed it in just two months. At the time of his visit last year, the Pope called for further research into the authenticity of the Shroud.
