... labyrinths as spiritual tools within the Christian tradition date back to at least the fourth century, and were in considerable use within the Franco-Christian community by the late 12th century.

Today, in the 21st century, labyrinths are, once again, in wide use by Christians throughout the world. This archetypal tool is used in a variety of ways for a variety of purposes, from therapeutic to pietistic, pragmatic to mystical and intuitive.
