The Labyrinth Of St Quentin
The Labyrinth of St Quentin, Unlike other French pavement labyrinths which are typically found in large cathedrals, the labyrinth of St.-Quentin is located within a collegiate church. That being said, St.-Quentin is a very large structure, and is the fourth largest sanctuary in France. This was made possible by continuous royal patronage, which began during the reign of King Saint Louis (1226-70) and only ended with the onslaught of the French Revolution. The labyrinth itself measures about 10.66 meters in width and was placed in the church around 1495, being modeled off of its cousin in Amiens. Unlike Amiens, however, the center does not commemorate the architects or even the local abbot of the chapter during the years of the church’s construction.
