Rom vous souhaite la bienvenue
Nous discutons ici de la création du Tarot au XIIe siècle par les moines bénédictins qui œuvraient au sein du scriptorium de l’abbaye royale de Saint-Denis. Mes recherches m’ont amené à conclure que Suger, abbé de Saint-Denis, fut le père du projet. Son nom est codé dans le titre de l’Arcane XX, Le jugement. Le code en question a servi à encrypter tant le Tarot que des éléments de son église abbatiale.
Bienvenue sur Tarotchoco !
We discuss the creation of the Tarot in the twelfth century by the Benedictine monks who worked in the scriptorium of the Royal Abbey of Saint-Denis. My research led me to conclude that Suger, abbot of Saint-Denis, was the father of the project. His name is coded in the title of Arcanum XX, Le jugement. The code in question was used to encrypt both the Tarot and elements of his abbey church.
Welcome to Tarotchoco!

J’ai la flemme pour alimenter ce blogue. J’ai l’impression de m’être bien pressé le citronnier.
Welcome ! This is the personal page of Rom who now owns the discussion group TarotL. We have migrated the group from Yahoo Groups to Groups.io. The idea is to save TarotL archives. But if this group finds new wings with the move then godspeed to it. It is no longer possible to post on TarotL at Yahoo Groups. Again, the migration has completed. It happened on November 14th, 2019.
A word about me, your new host. I am a French Canadian researcher living in Montréal. I have been a member of TarotL since 2000. English is not my mother tongue. This blog is based on my discoveries about the History of Tarot. Google Translate works fine with my prose should you want to explore a bit here. If something controversial like this new exposure on my take on the Tarot can lift our collective spirit again, I will be delighted. So, to rapidly sum it all up… I believe the Tarot was created by Benedictine monks in France in the XIIth century. In 2000, on TarotL, I named Abbott Suger de Saint-Denis as the maître-d’oeuvre of the Tarot project.
I do not believe in the Italian Renaissance Theory of Origin of the Tarot.
The migration of TarotL from Yahoo Groups to Groups.io went on as planned. I paid $220.00 USD for that to happen. Group.io sent a general message to each member when the deed was done. Now, if somebody on this list wants to send me 5$ or more to contribute to the process, I will appreciate it very much. You’ll find some payment links below and on the TarotL menu. If I receive more than the amount I already paid, I’ll save the money and apply it to the next annual payment on a Premium account.
