It’s a brand new year and Beyond Worlds is ready to get thing started.

Our first guest of 2011 is Robert Swiryn, author of The Secret Tarot: How the Story of the Cathars was Concealed in the Tarot of Marseilles.

Swiryn’s book looks at the background of the Cathars and the rapidly changing medieval world they inhabited, focusing especially on the political and religious powers of the time. What’s most unique about Swiryn’s work though, is how he’s placed the Tarot of Marseille within this historical context.

Swiryn believes that the Marseille Tarot provides a visual account of the personalities, events and spiritual ideals of the Cathar faithful. In his view, the cards not only store the religious philosophy, but the political history of this heretical Christian sect as well.

It’s going to be a fascinating discussion.  Don’t miss it!!  Join us live in the chatroom or call in (646)-200-0765.
