7 Feb 2024
We inaugurate our YouTube channel with the author, poet, essayist and friend Peter Mark Adams.

On this occasion, we talk to him about a remarkable work of Renaissance art, the Sola-Busca Tarot, in which Adams finds clues to the cult of Mithras.

Anyone familiar with the work of Peter Mark Adams might expect a meticulous, profound and engaging exploration of the Sola-Busca Tarot. And it is.

But beyond that he broadens the scope, opening the field for a deep dive into the deck’s Italian Renaissance context and the origins of Western esotericism itself.
