About The Deck
This expanded edition, Templar Tarot: the Journey, includes 101 cards that takes us further along the historical endeavors of the infamous Knights Templar. Unlike any other tarot deck, the Templar Tarot deck features two sets of Major Arcana cards taken from the original art of American artist Allen Chester. The significance of the art is interpreted by Stephen Dafoe, renowned Templar historian and Canadian author. Dafoe draws on his vast knowledge of the Templars and related traditions to see the mystical messages that Chester has captured in the art. As with the first edition of the Templar Tarot, this tarot deck will also be a limited edition. This is a perfect deck for those that use tarot as a meditation tool.
Advance Praise For The Templar Tarot
From Joan Bunning:
The cards of the Templar Tarot are especially rich in symbolic meaning. They are inspired by the compelling history of the Knights Templar – a story filled with archetypal characters and events. Allen Chester’s dramatic paintings capture these timeless elements. Their images and patterns create a symbolic picture. By meditating on this picture, you discover hidden truths about yourself and your world.

From Tim Wallace-Murphy:
It is a rare treat to read a book on the Templar Tarot written by an acknowledged Templar expert who is as insightful in matters of symbolism as Stephen Dafoe. A fascinating treatise that will be a useful addition to my personal research library.
