Vasile Suciu (January 13, 1873, Kiskopács, Fogaras County – January 25, 1935, Blaj) was a Romanian Greek-Catholic Metropolitan bishop of the Archdiocese of Făgăraş and Alba Iulia, considered to be the most important theologian of the Greek-Catholic Church in Transylvania.
After completing high school in Blaj, he pursued his theological studies in Rome at the Propaganda Fide, obtaining Ph.D.s in Philosophy (1894) and Theology (1898).
In 1919, he was elected honorary member of the Romanian Academy.
On January 1, 1920, Vasile Suciu was appointed Metropolitan, with approval from the Vatican, and with consent from King Ferdinand. During his tenure, a Concordat between the Holy See and the Kingdom of Romania was signed on May 10, 1927, and ratified on July 7, 1929 by the Iuliu Maniu government.
