Theologia - XXX of Mantegna Tarot

Theologia - XXX


With Theologia we meet the crown of the decade: the science of the divine. She is depicted with a double head - a young face, presumably female, gazes upwards, an old man's face looks down. We are supposed to understand that theology sees the heavens and the earth, the past and the future. Me, I always found it amusing that in this card, theology was so appropriately portrayed with a Janus head... ;)
