7 irrefutable relationships between the Bible and the Tarot

Until today, a Tarot deck that related to the Bible, had not been made. Yet, there are many indications that confirm the link between the Arcana of the Tarot and the Holy Book of Jews and Christians:

fenix bibbia0021. The sculptures and the stained-glass windows of Roman and Gothic churches, and the moralizing medieval texts, depict numerous images identical to the Major Arcana of the Tarot; for example, cardinal and theological Virtues, Death, Angels, Devils, the Last Judgment. Not surprisingly, all the major iconologists of the twentieth century, including eminent esoterics, such as Arthur Edward Waite and Gerard Van Rijnberk, argue that the origin of Tarot is in the Christian iconography of the Middle-Ages.

2. There are 22 Major Arcana in the Tarot, like the chapters of Revelation of St. John. Many Arcana are, in fact, directly inspired to Revelation.

3. At the end of the fifteenth century, a Dominican preacher claimed that the inventor of the Tarot had used the images of the Pope, the Angels and even God to drag men into the game.

4. The Italian jurist Francesco Piscina in his Discussion on the order of the Tarot figures (Mondovì, 1565) described the unknown inventor of the Tarot as a “good and faithful follower of the Catholic andChristian faith”. Moreover, Piscina stated that the order of 22 Triumphs shows “many moral teachings … to bite the bad and pestiferous habits, customary of the populace of today.”

5. The French jurist Guillaume D’Oncieu, in Numeralium locorum Decas (Lyon, 1584) directly linked the subdivision of the Tarot deck to Christian numerology.

6. In the sixteenth and seventeenth reworking of Tarot decks, many Major Arcana still reflected the Christian traditional iconography. It was only at the end of the eighteenth century that the false belief, regarding the Egyptian or Jewish origin of the Tarot, took hold.

7. In 2008, The Diocesan Museum of Sarsina set up a Tarot exhibition by contemporary artists, entitled The Devil and the Holy water, curated by Prof. Antonio Paolucci, superintendent of the Vatican Museums; the catalogue also listed articles by Alejandro Jodorowski.
