Abstract:

"The Tarot is one of the few books that cuts through conventional misperceptions to explore the Tarot deck as it really developed in the Middle Ages and Renaissance Europe - not, as some would suggest, in the far reaches of Egyptian antiquity. Mining the Hermetic, alchemical, and Neoplatonic influences behind the evolution of the deck, author and artist Robert M. Place provides a historically grounded and compelling portrait of the Tarot's true origins, without overlooking the deck's mystical dimensions."--Jacket.
