Description

2016 marks the 650th anniversary of the death of Henry Suso (Heinrich Seuse), the Dominican author of some of the most popular devotional works of the later Middle Ages. While scholars have studied his contributions to Latin and German theological and literary history since the nineteenth century, recent decades have seen important research into the translation, reception, and manuscript transmission of Suso’s works, his relationship to the visual and the auditory, his complicated self-presentation as both author and subject in his texts, and his literary performance of gender and eroticism.
