    At the end of his life, the Dominican monk and mystical author Henry Suso (ca. ) begun the Exemplar, a compilation of his German works made with the help of his spiritual daughter, Elsbeth : Ingrid Falque. Suso's Life compares with Augustine's Confessions in the realm of spiritual autobiography, while his major mystical works, the Little Book of Eternal Wisdom and the Little Book of Truth, witness to the intermingling of speculative mysticism dependent on Meister Eckhart and a devotional piety typical of the late Middle Ages.

    Suso's subjective account of the spiritual and invisible world, told in prose of unsurpassed poetic beauty, reflects the ardent spirituality of his devotion. Informed by severe mortifications, visions, ecstasies and revelations, this canonical text endures as a remarkable cultural artefact. The book was never intended for publication, and owes its preservation to an accident. What Suso confided to his 'spiritual daughter' was meant for her ears alone. In order to console a highly gifted woman in the acute sufferings that preceded her death he unfolded his own hidden life.
