“Keep his commandments, and you will have a cure for sin.”

The Shepherd of Hermas is an apocryphal text written in Rome in the 2nd century. It belongs to the category of “apocalyptic” literature, as it relates a series of revelations given to its titular character, Hermas, who may or may not also have been the work’s author.

The Shepherd of Hermas was widely read and respected in the early Church, with some Church Fathers (such as Irenaeus and Origen) even considering it part of canonical scripture.

The text is divided into three main sections: Visions, Mandates, and Parables. Taken together, they serve as an exhortation to repentance.
