Did the Knights Templar invent the tarot and bring a card deck with them on their return to Europe from Palestine (the Crusades)? In which case, I have read the Devil is Baphomet. Or was the tarot invented during the Renaissance when renewed interest in Greek/Roman mythology was part of a fountainhead of new ideas? In which case, the Devil would be Pan or Dionysus maybe. Is the tarot "the devil's picturebook", or is it the political tool of Renaissance revolutionaries, or a pictorial record of ancient mythologies, or what?
