Born to the nobility. Dominican nun. Friend and spiritual student of Blessed Henry Suso; unknown to him, she kept all their correspondence and wrote down their conversations about relgious life. When he found out, Elisabeth gave Henry her writings and he burned most of them as he did not want to be seen as promoting the level of self-denial and asceticism that he lived. Prioress of the convent in Töss, Switzerland.
