I stumbled across a very interesting theosophical article at this evening, which suggests that Pope John Paul II may have been a fan of Valentin Tomberg’s “Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism.”
The writer convincingly argues that the two bottom books you see in this photo were in fact copies of the original two volume set. Mind you, possession alone proves little. I have a copy of the later one volume edition myself. I was wondering if any of you out there had read it. Personally I found it very thought provoking, even if somewhat unorthodox and very heavy going.
