Henry de Sully (or Henry de Soilli) (d. 23 or 24 October 1195) was a medieval monk, Bishop of Worcester and Abbot of Glastonbury.

Henry became prior of Bermondsey Abbey in 1186. In September 1189, following the death of Henry II of England, Richard I of England appointed him Abbot of Glastonbury.[1] It was while he was abbot that Glastonbury claimed to find the body of King Arthur around 1191. He was elected to the see of Worcester[2] on 4 December 1193 and consecrated on 12 December 1193. He died on 23 or 24 October 1195.[3]
