Henry Suso was a German Dominican friar and the most popular vernacular writer of the 14th century. An important author in both Latin and Middle High German, he is also notable for defending Meister Eckhart’s legacy after Eckhart was posthumously condemned for heresy in 1329. He is regarded as an important figure by those interested in mysticism and spirituality as he belongs to the German mystical school which began with Eckhart and continued through the Flemish mystics to influence the whole history of spiritual experience in Europe. In this book the author shows Henry Suso as a saint for our own times with his divine virtues of patience, humility and love of the Cross and his humanity expressed in poetic appreciation of the work of God’s hands.
