Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: I grew up in a small town in Connecticut and attended the local parochial school. Some kids in my neighborhood were Protestants; they belonged to the YMCA with its indoor basketball court and swimming pool. The nuns, however, warned us of the evils of Protestantism. It would be a sin to join the YMCA because Protestantism is based on a false reading of the Bible, and the YMCA would lure us away from the one true faith, endangering our immortal souls.
Complete Book of Tarot: Card 9, hopes and fears, was the Page of Cups. Pages represent children, so the Page of Cups could represent his own wish for children as well as his fear of dependency.
Complete Book of Tarot: Much of the imagery of early tarot decks derives from the influence of the Roman Catholic Church on the culture of the time. Daily life was structured around religious feasts and the pantheon of Catholic saints, each of whom had a special day on the calendar. Because the common people could not read and write, the Church relied on images, allegories, and the spoken word to guide the faithful toward salvation. Together with the images of Greek and Roman mythology, these Christian allegories made their way onto the trump cards of the tarot.

Complete Book of Tarot: The Mamluk deck entered Europe via Spain and gradually spread to other countries. It was not long before the Europeans, upon noticing that the Mamluk court cards consisted of three men and no women, decided to add one to the court. This feminine touch resulted in a deck with a king, queen, cavalier, and knave. The inclusion of a queen in the European playing card deck may have been motivated by the actual dynasties and rulership in a culture where queens held positions of authority.
