TAROT HISTORY SERIES

WRITTEN BY RICHARD AVILA

History of The Major Arcana from Visconti Sforza to the Present

This series was written between October 2016 & January 2017.

The goal here is to trace the development of the archetypes from the first Tarot deck - the 14th century Visconti Sforza - to the present, and see how they've changed over time. These cover all of the Major Arcana and some related topics as well.

Articles are placed not in the order of the Major Arcana, but instead in the order they were written in.

 

Main sources for this were: -
