Tarot Médiéval: the Mysteries of the Initiate's Path
The history of Tarot Médiéval reads like an adventure novel. It was a French Tarot originally written by Francis Rolt-Wheeler and artist Christian Loring but published in the fateful year of 1939. Following the fall of France in June 1940, it seems not to have survived, and few copies of the original remain. Caitlín Matthews has translated and edited Rolt-Wheeler's text and written new material for this beautiful Tarot, whose art has been painstakingly restored by renowned artist Wil Kinghan. Tarot Médiéval has a luminous, dreamlike, medieval setting, with fully illustrated 22 Major Arcana, 16 Court Cards, and 40 Pip cards in the suits of Cups, Swords, Scepters (Wands), and Shekels (Coins). Each card explores the symbolic, initiatic, Kabbalistic, numerological, astrological, and divinatory significances, to nourish the spiritual life.
