  • Robert de Clari, a Frankish crusader, describes seeing in the Church of Our Lady of Blachernae in Constantinople a sydoine in which Our Lord was wrapped and which is raised vertically every Friday so that the figure of Our Lord is clearly visible on it.

This unique reference leads us to believe that this was the first time that public displays of the entire Shroud took place, probably due to fear of the Crusaders.
