Re: The meaning of the first six trumps

Hello, First thanks for keeping your brilliant discussions alive, although I'm having hard time reading everything and staying up to date, so my intervention might be slightly off-topic, please ignore if that is the case. On the other hand, we can note that in all (but one, the "Belgian Tarot&q...

Re: The nameless-ness of Death, how old ?

Noblet has no problem with it at all. neither does the anonymous parisian, and there are even some TdM2 where the name is added on the card (see one of the Rochias for instance). In fact older decks which include the names have it written clearly, other who don't, don't have any names on any cards ...

Re: Using the Rosenwald Sheet

Re: Temperance

Cicero was dead about 1400 years in Petraca's time. Charlemain is only dead about 1200 years, but surely he somehow influenced me and my culture. But there were meanwhile many others, too, right? That means you consider the literary influence of Charlemagne nowadays equals Cicero's literary importa...

Re: Temperance

Cicero has to the origin of Tarot likely a little more distance than the Trionfi of Petrarca, which at c. 1440 were quite just around the corner I don't get it Huck, why would Cicero be less likely an influence on the tarot in the XVth century than Petrarca ?
