- 2012, David Engel, Studies in Medieval Jewish Intellectual and Social History:
- This cloth, known as the Veronica or the vera icon, was kept in St. Peter's in Rome, where its presense is documented with some certainty from the mid-twelfth century onward. At first, however, the existence of the Veronica was recorded not as an image but as a textile, a sudarium.
- 2016, J. Douglas Kenyon, Missing Connections: Challenging the Consensus, page 154:
- Most interestingly, scientific analysis has shown that the stains of the sudarium match those on the head portion of the Shroud, a notion first suggested by Monsignor Ricci in 1965.
Second-declension noun (neuter).
