Complete Book of Tarot: The fifteenth-century Renaissance artists who created the tarot added a fifth suit of trump cards (trionfi) to the traditional playing card deck that originally came to Europe via Mamluk, Egypt. This additional suit of trumps, now called the major arcana (‘greater secrets’) consists of twenty-two allegorical images inspired by Greek and Roman mythology and the Bible. Many tarot readers view the sequence of trump cards as a series of moral lessons the Fool must master on his journey to salvation. Occultists often refer to the cards as ‘keys’ because of a 1781 speculation by Antoine Court de Gébelin that each major arcana card represents a key to the ancient magical wisdom of the Egyptian god Thoth, whose mysteries are encoded in the symbolism of the cards.

Complete Book of Tarot: In the dialogue Phaedrus, Plato, the most famous student of Socrates, called his teacher the wisest, most just, and best of all men he had ever known. According to Robert Place, the Renaissance artists who designed the Chariot card were inspired by Platos metaphor of the human soul as a rational charioteer trying to control the unruly horses of appetite and will. In this metaphor, Plato represented Socratess idea that being truly human implies ‘the capacity to transcend instinct and desire and to make conscious, ethical choices.’ 14
