Beautifully illustrated. This work details the subtle historic threads which have contributed to the development of Tarot Cards. Pagan & Christian influences are equally examined, as are the theories of early Hermetic influences such as Court de Geblin, Eliphas Levi, A.E. Waite & Pamela Coleman Smith, Aleister Crowley and the Golden Dawn. A refreshing overview of the insights of important Tarot scholar Gertrude Moakely are also included in relation to the carnival tradition of Northern Italy & the influence of Petrarch (the founder of humanism & mentor of Dante). The second part of this work examines each of the cards of the Major Arcana and the numbered and Court cards of the Minor Arcana as they relate to the art of Divination/Tarot Reading.
