Chemin de Jerusalem

A lovely post at "Hoarded Ordinaries" on Road to Jerusalem labyrinths, which symbolically substitute for pilgrimage. I've always been fascinated by these; I think what started the fascination was the use of one as a plot device in Rutherfurd's Sarum, which I read as a teenager - the great value of sprawling historical novels is that they introduce you to new things like that. (Hat-tip: Early Modern Notes.)
