Another Latin fragment — "iber" — may refer to Emperor Tiberius, who reigned at the time of Jesus' crucifixion, Frale said."I tried to be objective and leave religious issue aside," Frale told The AP."What I studied was an ancient document that certifies the execution of a man, in a specific time and place."Frale is noted in Italy for her research on the medieval order of the Knights Templar and her discovery of unpublished documents on the group in the Vatican's archives."The online Catholic Encyclopedia," said Knight, "demonstrates the collective power of people on the web.The project allowed people to participate in a common project, allowing us to do far more than any one of us could do individually." Like medieval monks transcribing the Bible to make it available to others, hundreds of volunteers obtained copies of the original 1913 encyclopedia, often spending as much as an hour per page transcribing the articles into the computer, and then emailing them directly to Knight.In addition, Vietnamese software engineer An Dang, of Australia, created a CD-ROM version that is currently being used by Vietnamese who, living under communist rule, do not have access to religious materials or the Internet.

The Encyclopedia is the work of coordinator Kevin Knight and more than 400 volunteers who transcribed nearly 12,000 articles from a 1913-edition of the Catholic Encyclopedia.Lombatti said "the message was that you won't even have a tomb to cry over." Unusual sightings in the shroud are common and are often proved false, said Luigi Garlaschelli, a professor of chemistry at the University of Pavia.Garlaschelli recently led a team of experts that reproduced the shroud using materials and methods that were available in the 14th century, proof, they said, that it could have been made by a human hand in the Middle Ages.The Catholic Encyclopedia has also received international attention.ACI-PRENSA, a Latin American newswire agency is undertaking to translate the entire Encyclopedia into Spanish (
