Tarot Blog

There’s a particularly interesting, if skeptical blog about the origin of tarot cards here. Very objective in his stance, the writer is only interested in factual sources and is determined to cut through speculative occult theories to find out what the origins of the deck may be. Well researched, clearly written material. He clearly wishes to set the context for tarot cards as a moral allegorical journey through the sequence of the trumps, and looks for examples from the period that defend his thesis (derived from Moakley’s “Tarot Cards Painted by Bembo”) that the trumps are similar to triumphal processions put on by the Sforzas and other renaissance lords.
