He had written extensively on many esoteric subjects, such as alchemy, mysticism, and the various mystery cults to which he belonged. Here Waites scholarly and mystical interests played an important role in the fate of the tarot.

Tarot Triumphs: I would also like to credit the jongleurs as possible creators or transmitters of Tarot. These were medieval traveling entertainers who could juggle, sing, perform acrobatics, play instruments, act, tell stories, and even tame animals.14 Their profession overlapped with that of the troubadours or trouvères of southern France, whose poetry and music were on the whole more high-flown, but who shared the roaming, performing, marvel-seeking, and wonder-creating characteristics of the jongleurs.
