Intinction was practiced in the east and west by the seventh century. The practice was also motivated by concern that the sacrament might be carried away for superstitious use. Intinction was opposed by the Council of Braga in Spain in the seventh century, and by Pope Paschal II in the twelfth century because it differed from Christ's action at the Last Supper. Intinction has been historically associated with giving communion to the sick.
