Great Bible Tarot based on Gustave Doré's biblical illustrations

The GREAT BIBLE TAROT is the perfect choice for anyone who wants a beautiful and faithful deck that truly embodies the Western bibliomancy traditions. Incorporating the wonderful imagery of biblical stories illustrated by Gustave Doré with traditional tarot symbolism, this visually unorthodox tarot is perfect for meditation and divination work.

Bibliomancy is the use of sacred books in divination. The method of applying sacred books (especially specific words and verses) for foretelling future events, revealing negative entities, for divination is widespread in many religions of the world - Vedas is to the Hindus, Tanakh is to the Jews, Old and New Testaments to the Christians, and the Quran to the Muslims.

Bibliomancy has several advantages over other forms of divination, the greatest of which is that it may be used successfully by a relatively unskilled reader. The deck makes interpretation easy by including Bible verses and Tarot correspondences on each card.

The titles and sequence of the Great Bible Tarot follow that of the Rider-Waite Tarot and for the beginner it is possible to use the cards immediately, however the learning process can go on for many years.

But the practiced user will find hidden symbols contained within the biblical illustrations. There will always be something new to discover about the Bible. Day by day, week by week, a relationship between a particular cards will suddenly fall into place and deeper meaning will become apparent.
