Small introduction to tarology

Tarology is a designation chosen to indicate divinatory art using cards or tarots as a medium. Neologists used this name for the first time. But tarology is also a practice based on a set of beliefs, specific to divination as to the existence of enigmatic forces or imperceptible links between things. The origins of this practice are very varied: some come from ancient Egypt, others have a bohemian origin etc.

History of the tarology

The first use of cards to divination could date to the year 1500 with the release of Chaos del tri per uno. It is Merlin Cocai or Teofilo Folengo who wrote this literary essay of divination reading with tarot cards. Towards the end of the 18th century, the first known and attested documents were created in Boulogne, Italy. For France in particular, Antoine Court de Gébelin introduced the tarot of Besançon or Tarot de Marseille. This type of tarot is still used until now.
