Henry Suso (Seuse, c.1295–1366). German mystic. Of noble birth, he entered a Dominican convent at Constance at the age of 13. He studied under Eckhart at Cologne between 1322 and 1325, and became his disciple. His defence of Eckhart led to censure. His teaching, found especially in his life, and his Little Books of Truth and Eternal Wisdom, are expressed in vivid imagery. He called himself ‘The servant of the Eternal Wisdom’.
