The birthplace of the Tarot has been lost in time as empires were eradicated and generated. Some speculators proclaim that Christian invasions prompted hierophants of ancient religious sects and pagans to store their secrets with the nomadic gypsies (Eden Gray 6). They traveled the globe and transmitted the mysterious wisdom to those who the gypsies believed to be worthy (6). Another possibility is that it became a pictorial language between the scholars from diverse lands in post-Alexandria (7). Although the origin of the Tarot is unknown, its ability to assistance even into modern day is remarkable.
