Dominican preacher, theologian, and mystic; born Hochheim, near Gotha, Germany, c.1260;died Cologne, Germany, 1327. He held many professorial and administrative posts in his Order. Be was an effectively simple preacher and has left in his sermons specimens of beautiful Gerwan prose. As theologian he followed the teaching of the great Scholastics but departed from their method and form. He is the father of German mysticism, of which he is held by many to be the greatest exponent. Investigations of his moral conduct and theological teaching resuIted in his entire vindication. The papal Bull which condemned a number of his propositions declared also his profession of faith, repudiation of error, and submission to the Holy See.
