<p>Gerard Encausse (Papus), who founded the modern Martinist Order, was in his day (1865-1916) a skilled populariser of occult thought. Nowhere is this more evident than in his&nbsp;<em>Tarot of the Bohemians</em>, an extraordinary, comprehensive and profound study of T. S. Eliot&rsquo;s &lsquo;wicked pack of cards&rsquo; that reaches far beyond its mundane use as a fortune-telling device.&nbsp;</p><p>In this highly readable study, as relevant now as the day it was first published, Papus links the Tarot with Kabbalah and astrology, traces an esoteric history of the pack, then embarks on a deep analysis of the symbolism of the cards. He concludes with seven practical lessons on how to use the cards for divination. The book as a whole is a must-read reference for students of the occult and likely to remain so for many years to come.</p>
