I templari e la Sindone: l'"ipotetica della falsità" e l'invenzione della storia - This article presents a critical review of Barbara Frale’s book, I Templari e la sindone di Cristo. She maintains that the Knight Templars conserved the Turin shroud as a weapon against heresy. The theory is based on a partial and rather censored interpretation of original records and upon a series of unproven hypothesis. Nevertheless, the book is an interesting example of how today’s authors of historical novels are inclined to confuse hypothesis with reality, thus creating a new narrative style that treats hypothetical propositions as real in order to fill in the blanks of a story and to recreate inexistent objects.
