Once more: Type in Style

I have now needed three posts to attribute all labyrinth examples of this series to their types. Here I present the last part.

We can see here a similar result as in the two previous posts. The 18 examples belong to 14 different types.
What can be seen here also is, that in some labyrinths the pattern may be difficult to obtain (type Liger, type Ely, type Kieser, type Gent). I do not explain this further here because this is beyond the space of this post.

In order not to overload this post I interrupt here and present the remaining examples in my next post.

Among the examples here, there are also figures, that are no unicursal labyrinths in the strict sense. For reasons of space I do not explain this further here but will come back to it later.

Types and Examples

In my last post I have attributed some labyrinth examples to various styles. Here I will now attribute labyrinth examples to types of labyrinths. I have already described what is a type of labyrinth in post / 6 of this series (see related posts). I refer to single individuals of labyrinths as examples, irrespective of whether they appear as images, drawings, plans, laid-out built labyrinths etc. I will use the three types already described in my previous post and attribute a selected number of examples to each.

 

RF Kretisches Labyrinth

 

Examples of the Cretan Type

 

There exist a vast number of labyrinth examples of the Cretan Type. This is the type with the most examples. Great differences can be seen with respect to style or layout of the various examples. But all of them are alternating one-arm labyrinths with seven circuits and a level sequence of  3, 2, 1, 4, 7, 6, 5.

 

RF Reims

 

Examples of the Reims Type

 

There are only a very few examples of the Reims type. I know only two historical examples. Therefore in order to make one line complete, I have added a drawing of my own.

 

RF Chartres

 

Exemples of the Chartres Type

 

This is completely different for the Chartres type. This is the second most frequent type of labyrinth.

This type is also particularly suited to highlight the difference between type and style. As is known,  there exist a Chartres type as well as a Chartres style. So we just have to compare the labyrinths attributed to the Chartres type here with the examples from my last post (Type or Style /9) that were attributed to the Chartres style.
