Timelines


A great "Timeline of the Occult and Divinatory Tarot from 1750 to 1980" composed by Mary Greer with some help by Lola Lucas was recently published at tarotpassages.
http://www.tarotpassages.com/mkgtimeline.htm

Joan Coal: A timeline called "Herstory of Women's Tarot" concentrates at the new development from 1960 - 2003 with a focus on "Female Tarot".
http://www.lelandra.com/comptarot/wo...ottimeline.htm

Michael Hurst's timeline ("Collected fragments") is already well known:
http://geocities.com/cartedatrionfi/Fragments.html

Simon Wintle offers a nice collection of early playing card references
till ca. 1500:
http://www.wopc.co.uk/history/earlyrefs.html

Our own time-line concentrates on presenting available picture material, documents and articles via links - either in our Museum or somewhere in the web.
http://trionfi.com/0/j/

It's nice to see all these different approaches run together to give a good historical view on Tarot

updated


The report to the Michelino deck ("Oldest Tarot cards") is considerably expanded and updated. Although it's still not totally ready and picture material is often missing ...

Regarding my earlier post regarding te connection of the trumps and their incorporation in processions (following a note of Huck), I now found the woodcut from a edition of Petrarca's Triumphi, Venice 1488, Triumph of Love, showing a popess (!) in the crowd following the float with cupid in Shephard p.38.

Tarot Museum: Compare Motifs


The Tarot Museum got a new function: "Compare Motifs"

Now it is possible, that the user can arrange two different pictures from the same or two different decks on the monitor. So it possible to compare for instancs the Magician of the d'Este cards with the Magician of a Sforza deck etc.

All Museum resources could be used for that - beside the timeline, which needs some extra work to fit the scheme. Of course also Inana's list doesn't work - hese are foreign sources.

New: a page about "Il Cortegiano" (1507 - 1513) and
some notes to playing cards in it. The notes are not
very important.

New: biography project


Incomplete and only at a start is the Tarot-history-biography-project:

Momentary entries are reachable from:

http://trionfi.com/tarot/

you've to go to the end of the page, some (or most) of the entries are only in a state of preparation.

The project is open to contributions, either, that authors of Tarot history related pages wish to present their results, books or articles inside the project, or to suggestions and contributions to specific authors of the past.

The aim are "dictionary articles", which do lead with links to further resources in the web or to articles inside trionfi.com, in which the relevant persons are mentioned.

One aspect of the project is practical publishing help for new authors in the theme.

Trionfi


I was idly glancing through an auction house catalogue last week and found that the word Trionfi was also used to describe decorative china table centrpieces in renaissance Italy.
