coverMystical Origins of the Tarot: From Ancient Roots to Modern Usage, by Paul Huson, from Destiny Books, ISBN 0892811900.

Paul Huson, a student of Tarot for over 40 years, has expertly tracked each symbol of the Minor Arcana to its roots in ancient Persia and the Major Arcana Trump card images to the medieval world of mystery, miracle, and morality plays. This book thoroughly examines the historical sources for each card and how the cards' divinatory meaning evolved from the symbols.
