The tarot trumps and the holy grail

Great Secrets of the Middle Ages

           Expanding on the material discussed in her The Woman with the Alabaster Jar, Starbird here examines the historical connections between the tarot trumps, the Grail Heresy, and the Knights Templar, the medieval "guardians of the Grail family. "Adherents of the "Great Heresy" believed that Jesus was married, that his wife and child found political refuge in Gaul, and  that his bloodline, the sang raal of the royal house of King David, survived in Western Europe. The earliest tarot trumps provided a visual catechism for these "other Christians" so brutally suppressed by  the Inquisition. Symbols on the earliest trumps whisper "Great Secrets" (major arcana) of the alternative Christian Church of the Middle Ages--the "Grail" Church of Love.
