Tarosophists Annual Tarot & Divination Awards 2017

We are delighted to open voting in the Tarot equivalent of the Oscars – the 8th annual Tarosophists Awards for Tarot and Divination 2017!

Tarot History

What is the real history of tarot?

We get asked a lot about the origin of Tarot cards in our Facebook group and by students, so we have provided below several recommended books on the presently researched and known history of the cards.

The tarot appears to have originated in Italy in the 15th Century, the earliest name being ‘carte da trionfi’ (cards of the triumphs). Some time later, about 50-100 years, certainly by 1505, they became known as ‘tarocchi’ in Italy and ‘taraux’ in France.

There is no evidence these types of cards were used by ‘gypsies’ nor is there any evidence […]
