Tarot of the Saints

[Star] [6 of Wands] "Tarot of the Saints demonstrates that there is a saint to match each of the archetypcal figures in the Tarot trumps." This is the premise of Robert Place's new deck. Each of the major arcana cards shows a saint whose life and mission reflects the wisdom and meaning of that card. In addition, each of the 16 court cards also depicts a saint with an illustrative life story. The minor arcana cards show objects, symbols and scenes of a spiritual nature, including many from the life of Jesus. The Tarot of the Saints comes as a set with the book "A Gnostic Book of Saints" (248 pages). In this book, Place discusses the origin and mystical view of the tarot. He describes each saint and the meaning of the symbols on the cards. Place is also the creator of the Angels Tarot and the Alchemical Tarot with Rosemary Ellen Guiley.
