Présentation de l'éditeur

Complete with Updated Images and full color plates. (Please Note: The Celebration Edition of the Tarot of the Bohemians differs from the Jubilee Edition, in that the full color plates have been rendered in greyscale for affordability, and the cover has been changed to differentiate the two editions from each other. Otherwise, the text remains the same. ) THE Tarot pack of cards, transmitted by the Gypsies from generation. to generation, is the primitive book of ancient initiation. This has been clearly demonstrated by Guillaume Postel, Court de Gébelin, Etteila, Eliphas Levi, and J. A. Vaillant. The key to its construction and application has not yet been revealed, so far as I know. I therefore wished to fill up this deficiency by supplying Initiates, i. e. those who are acquainted with the elements of occult science, with an accurate guide, which would assist them in the pursuit of their studies. The uninitiated reader will find in it the explanation of the lofty philosophy and science of ancient Egypt; whilst ladies are enabled to practise the use of the divining Tarot, by methods which we have rendered easy in Chapter XX. The book has been so arranged that each part forms a complete whole, which can, if necessary, be studied separately. I have used every effort to be as clear as possible; the public that has warmly welcomed my other books will, I hope, forgive the imperfections inherent to a work of this kind. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Gérard Encausse, dit Papus (13 juillet 1865 à La Coruña - 25 octobre 1916 à Paris) est un occultiste français, cofondateur de l'Ordre Martiniste avec Augustin Chaboseau.
Gérard Encausse passa toute sa jeunesse à Paris, où il fut reçu docteur en médecine (juil. 1894). Avant même de terminer ses études, dès 1886 environ, il se donna pour tâche de lutter contre le scientisme de l'époque en répandant une doctrine nourrie aux sources de l'ésotérisme occidental d'alors : le chimiste Louis Lucas, le mathématicien Wronski, l'alchimiste Cyliani, le pythagoricien Lacuria, le magnétiseur Hector Durville, Antoine Fabre d'Olivet, Alexandre Saint-Yves d'Alveydre. Encausse, qui se fit appeler Papus d'après le nom d'un esprit du Nuctaméron, attribué à Apollonius de Tyane, fut un chef de file incontesté. Il se défendait d'être un thaumaturge ou un inspiré et se présentait comme un savant, un expérimentateur. Par ailleurs, la pensée de Louis-Claude de Saint-Martin a laissé sur lui une trace profonde à partir de 1889 environ, peu après sa rupture (1890) avec la Société Théosophique de Mme Blavatsky.
Il s'affilia à de nombreuses organisations initiatiques, dont : le martinisme de Henri Delaage (1882), l'Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor de Max Théon (en 1885 ?), la Société Théosophique de Helena Blavatsky (en 1887), l'Ordre Kabbalistique de la Rose-Croix de Péladan et Guaita (en 1888), l'Eglise gnostique de Jules Doinel (en 1892), l'Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (en 1895), la franc-maçonnerie (vers 1900), le Rite Swedenborgien (1901), le Rite de Memphis-Misraïm (1908), etc.

Papus didn't hide the truth, but he veiled it really well!!! 11 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
"Experience has shown us that anything can be fearlessly said. Only those who should understand will understand; the others will accuse our work of being obscure and incomprehensible." Such does Papus describe his literary style... and it IS virtually incomprehensible! But for those who understand the work, by stopping to think about what is being said, and by contemplating the Qaballistic correspondences with IEVE which the author proposes, one can glean from this book several truths. However I don't recommend it to beginners. Moreover, whoever reads it should bear in mind that 1) they have to make a choice between the "Martinist" or French Qaballistic correspondences Papus gives, and the Golden Dawn correspondences. 2) they have to keep in mind that Papus is now outdated in such areas as philology (when he mentions the Hebrew alphabet)... thus I suggest this book only to the well-read on the topic... as it may be confusing. However, I repeat that this book has given me much to think about ... so many questions have arisen since I read the book, about IEVE in nature etc. etc. If you feel up to it... read it!

Papus draws the map but not the territory 15 avril 2012
Par rareoopdvds - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have owned this book for quite some time and have referenced it often. It generally seemed to make sense in terms of understanding Tarot meanings and a basic foundation of learning Kabbalah. But recently, I find myself re-reading it in depth to access it better, but now find I do not agree with it as blindly as I once did.

I once thought Papus (Gerard Encausse) was a pupil of Eliphas Levi, however, researching more, I realize that was not the case, but rather he was heavily influenced by Levi, and you can see that in Papus' writings. Levi wrote romantically, while Papus attempted a more serious or even "scientific" approach to the Kabbalah.

This book was translated by A. E. Waite, and he does not scrutinize Papus in the way he did Levi, perhaps, because Papus wrote without any vagueness or utilize poetic devices to capture his meanings. In my opinion, Tarot of the Bohemians serves as a sloppy translation to 'Dogma and Ritual of High Magic' peppered with Theosophy and other ideas from his order of the Martinists. The result is, what I feel, one of the best laid out structures of learning the Tarot via the Kabbalah that I could find today.

Most Tarot books seem to just get to the meanings of the cards and assert no justification of where the meanings come from, and this probably irks me more than anything about Tarot books. Papus starts from the seed of all things based within the Hebrew letters, specifically starting with the YOD, the sperm of all that follows. After spelling out the Tetrgrammaton and explaining its attributions, he would apply numbers to them and the positions would have their meanings until we understood clearly how 1, 2, 3 and 4 all have their part with YHVH.

Then we get to what is called "Theosophic Reduction and Addition". This is simple math that any 4 year old should be able to do. 1+2=3. Yet, Papus attributes meanings to these to help develop the symbolism. So Theosophic Reduction is done simply, if you have a number, say, 10, then to reduce it is to simply add the 1+0=1. Easy enough. So a reduction is, to my understanding to reduce the value to less than 10 to have a single number, and furthermore, to reduce it to 4 or less as all numbers are made up from the 1 (even 4, which is 1+2+3+4=10=1+0=1). You might be wondering what I did. If you missed it, well, Papus sometimes meanders over points thoroughly from chapter to chapter, while other stuff he seems to skirt through fairly quickly. Theosophic Addition is to extrapolate the number from 1 to the number in question. So 4 becomes 1+2+3+4. The answer is not 10, but 1 because he reduces the 10. I am not sure why he does this, and he does not answer for large numbers like 26, which equals 340. So am I to reduce this? 3+4+0=7. Then do I add this? 1+2+3+4+5+6+7=28=2+8=10=1. Ok. It all seems to work. But when you play with numbers in this manner, it seems like you can get lost with no apparent rhyme or reason. It becomes busy work for the mind. If I decided to take 26 and just reduce it as 2+6=8, then add that as 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8=36=3+6=9=?? If you take 9, add it, it gives you 45, so, now you are in a loop of 9's. If anyone understands this better and I missed something, please step forward and explain it to me. I feel I have understood it well enough to take it at face value and move on.

Ultimately, what you need to know is that 4 and 1 are the same, in that 4 becomes 1 both mathematically (as explained above) and symbolically, as 4 becomes a transcendant number that takes the place of 1. So, for instance, the card Ace, two, three, the fourth card is a mirror of the Ace, but in lesser form. So the card is a transition card from one plane or world to another. And when you have gone through the cards, it leaves with the 10 card, which is the transition card to the next suit. And final suit card (the 10 of coins), becomes the transition card to the Major Arcana.

Whether you agree that the Trumps come first or the Minors are, more or less, irrelevant, but rather the the system that Papus builds up is a logical one and can be followed well enough.

Papus is thorogh and goes over his points again and again, so by the time you are done with the Minor Arcana, you have a pretty solid understanding of what he is getting at. It can be confusing at times because it breaks down into multitudes of groups of 4's stemming from the original YHVH. So yes, it is a different approach from the modern traditional mapping onto the Tree of Life, the 10 sephira. Papus does not even attribute the four elements, which is surprising considering Eliphas Levi emphasized those well in his book.

When he gets into the Major Arcana, similar explanations come through, with the exception these are done with terniaries, or Triads rather than Quadrants. But the premise is the same, the fourth card is the transition card. So you would have Magus, Empress, High Priestess as your triad, and the Emperor becomes the transition card to the next realm.

His Tarot attributes leave a little to be desired in the way of his describing of symbolism. His organization at this stage does not come across as clean or as well developed as the previous part of the book. Following the Major cards, he explores more of the cards as a totality. Then some articles from Stanlislas de Guaita, and Ch. Barlet, along with applications of the Tarot and various other symbolism.

In sum, I find the book value in its basic principles of building up a symbolic foundation for the Minor cards specifically, and perhaps to draw some base ideas for the Trumps, but ultimately, the writing is never interesting or has a narrative that draws you in. Contradictory to the organization he placed on learning of the Kabbalistic Tarot, the book itself needs better organization.

Being as it is, the book has been an influential piece in the history of Tarot and Papus has made a major contributions in both occultism and Tarot that you cannot ignore it entirely.

Warning Not for the beginner 28 décembre 2012
Par peter - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If your looking for a book on symbols or interpeting tarot cards in a kabalistic way or some silly book on what do the cards mean . than you may be let down, this book goes beyond tarot cards.
I have studied this book for some time ,not this edition but a much much much older edition , this is the ancient book of initiation. the full title is "The Tarot of the Bohemians: The Most Ancient Book in the World for the Use of Initiates" . This book although is not for the beginner its very advanced, so advanced in fact you can spend a life time trying to figure this book out . The first 2 chapters are fairly easy to grasp but as the book goes deeper and deeper you will find your self lost. I would say 95% of people who read this book Don't get it. Why? Because it's the ancient book of initiation. it's only for those who are serious on the path and those who have done the inner work to be able to get close to it. if you find your self lost while trying to read it. than you're not ready . most people say " no i get it " but they are only understanding it superficially , It takes deep insight to even get a glimpse of whats behind this book mind you this is a very powerful book . Please don't do the exercises unless you know what you are doing. This is not for spiritual juniors but only advanced students and even than....... well the book will tell you if you are not ready.

I devoured this book... 2 juin 2012

It would take too long to explain why this is the book to have. My biggest point of joy is justifying why the Levi alephbet is the true way, along with Strength as 11, Justice as 8, in contrast to the goofy, random/arbitrary Golden Dawn way of offsetting the alephbet by one.

For the price, just the diagrams (unavoidably messed up during printing, but available online) are worth it.

I'm now trying to tie the Kabalah to the Levi order on the tree, and I thin kit is the best way to understand either/both there is.
This is like a companion to Mouni Sadhu's The Tarot 31 mars 2015

This is like a companion to Mouni Sadhu's The Tarot. Both feed on one another a give a good explanation (that does not differ book to book) about the Tarot. I think Papus is the earlier of the two.
