Russell Kirk

A real Kirk, the conservative and brilliant philosopher-scholar Russell Kirk (1918-1994), a late-in-life convert from Atheism to Christianity and a strong believer in the Shroud’s authenticity, caught the sense of it. While speaking about the Shroud, he described the notion of dematerialization in somewhat strange yet lucid terms:

But the Resurrection in the flesh—which some now hint was bound up with nuclear disintegration and reintegration, our solid flesh being known now to consist of innumerable electrical particles held in coherence by means of which we know nothing—proved that Jesus the son had transcended matter and was divine.
