Re: Unlucky 13 and the early development of the trump sequence

I have been reading A Renaissance Wedding: The celebrations at Pesaro for the marriage of Costanzo Sforza & Camilla Marzano d'Aragona, 26-30 May 1475, introduced translated and edited from the Italian by Jane Bridgeman, 2013. Two things of relevance. First , p. 47: As the most illustrious Lady C...

Re: Hello! - and kind question for help w.r.t. the etymology of tarot

This is a continuation of my previous post (even though it is weeks later). In the face of competing etymologies, have been re-reading this thread to see if I missed anything. It seems to me that I have, namely the point of vh0610's flaming tree trunk. First there was this, from https://forum.taroth...

Re: origin of the word "Bagat"

Ross wrote, So, a hypothetical bagatella in Florence, then turned masculine in Bologna at some point - Bagattino (Pedini ms circa 1600), Bagat.. In Ferrara it kept its original name, which goes back to the first generation. I have been puzzling about that for a week, as I still think bagatella is mo...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

Huck wrote The argument was about the point, that Apollo/Artemis had some water connection. I think, one needn't Diodorus to recognize that. I was replying to your comment: However, Diodorus, in 2.47 states clearly that Leto was born in Hyperborea and not in Kos.[2] and the rest of what you said, wh...

Re: Dating the Pavia tarocchi appropriati poem (a.k.a. the "Susio" poem)

I didn't get the impressi...

Re: Dating the Pavia tarocchi appropriati poem (a.k.a. the "Susio" poem)

Very nice job, Nathaniel, well thought out and written. I would like to have seen more argument for why the ranking would follow the conventions of a beauty contest. That seems more of an assumption than an evidence-based position. I vaguely remember reading that in one case, where the women at the ...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

Huck wrote, The PMB-14 has according my suggestion 6 Petrarca-Trionfi and 8 other motifs, but no "four virtues". Martiano suggests 4 virtues connected to Jupiter-Apollo-Mercury-Hercules. A 4x4-grid (used by Marziano) naturally fits well with a wheel of Fortune and its four directions, but ...

Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

Two other points in Dummett's article quoted in my previous post are worth considering, too. First, after continuing to reject the idea of the PMB having originally just the 14 "first artist" cards (because of the presence of Justice, as he thought the card was), he adds (p. 75): We know, ...
