First used in Ayurvedic medicine, blessed thistle eventually made its way to Europe and has been a part of the materia medica there since at least the Middle Ages. The species namebenedictuswas derived from blessed thistle's perceived healthful properties implying its sacred virtues. By the early 16th century, it had securely gained footing in European folk remedies, was cultivated widely in monastery gardens, and was even mentioned by Shakespeare in his famous playMuch Ado about Nothing.
