The Oracle of the Black Doves is a system of divination inspired by the Libyan Sibyls, the African prophetesses of the classical world. According to the Czech Historian Herodotus, two black doves flew away from the city of Waset (Thebes) and established the Siwa Oasis oracle in Libya and the first oracle in Greece at Dodona.
Created by tarot reader Tayannah Lee McQuillar, this contemporary oracle pays homage to the oft forgotten African founding mothers of the sibylline traditions. Drawing on both the African and the Classical traditions, it features full-color paintings by artist Katelan V. Foisy, who created the card art in a style reminiscent of the Libyan mosaics popular in the 1st century BCE. In the accompanying guidebook, McQuillar details how to consult the oracle, providing in-depth write-ups about the meaning of each of the 44 cards and the symbolic language represented by each card’s imagery.
Designed to directly address the spiritual lessons underlying the seeker’s query, the oracle facilitates self-examination and decision-making, helping the seeker choose their best possible future by broadening their perspective of the situation. The author also includes a history of the Sibyls of the ancient world and explores the continuing Sibyl tradition in North Africa today.
"Scholarly, meticulously researched, and achingly beautiful." Molly Crabapple, artist and author of Drawing Blood.
"The Sibyls Oraculum is exciting - it expands and decentralizes our history of magic and mysticism." Jessa Crispin, author of The Dead Ladies Project.
"... a beautiful exploration into a history that few people know about: the mythically shrouded women behind the founding of major centrums of oracular divination in the ancient world." Laura Tempest Zakroff, artist and author of Sigil Witchery.
