Similitudes By Pastor of Hermas

Not much is known of Hermas (150c). In his story The Shepherd, he states that he was originally a slave. He eventually gained his freedom, married, started a business, lost nearly everything,... More > watched his children stray, and finally reunited his family. The Ten Similitudes describe principles by which the Christian virtues may be attained. The similitudes consider such topics as Christians as strangers, the rich and the poor, the sinners and the righteous, blossoming and withered trees, the purpose of the commandments, fasting, and punishment. They also include long parables about branches, a tower, maidens, and mountains. The longest of these (Similitude 9) is an elaboration of the parable of the building of a tower, which had formed the matter of the third vision. The tower is the Church, and the stones of which it is built are the faithful. The tenth similitude is not a parable but a concluding chapter to summarize the work of the Shepherd.< Less

Commandments By Pastor of Hermas

Not much is known of Hermas (150c). In his story The Shepherd, he states that he was originally a slave. He eventually gained his freedom, married, started a business, lost nearly everything,... More > watched his children stray, and finally reunited his family. In The Shepherd, Hermas describes a series of visions about Christian life and morality. Throughout the story Hermas is both the hero and the narrator. The story is set in Rome and is divided into three parts: five visions, twelve mandates, and ten similitudes, or parables. In brief, the twelve mandates depict Christian virtues--humility, chastity, truthfulness, long-suffering, simplicity, respectfulness, and good cheer. The mandates also exhort believers to purity and repentance. Prominent here is the “Two Ways” pattern of moral instruction (the way of life and the way of death). This mirrors the Didache and other early Christian ethical writings.< Less

More > Christian ethical truths with such symbolism as a tower under construction and an older woman who becomes youthful. The visions begin with Hermas as he is smitten by the beautiful Rhoda to whom he is sold as a slave. In the second vision Rhoda reappears as an old woman, representing the church. This old woman becomes more youthful each time she appears. The visions portray the church growing and spreading, purified by suffering and, in the fourth vision, by the terrors of judgment. It is in the fifth vision, while Hermas is in his own house, that he no longer sees the church, but a bright glowing man appears dressed like a shepherd. The man has been sent to live with Hermas to teach him until his death.< Less

The book was originally written in Rome, in the Greek language, but a Latin translation was made very shortly afterwards. Only the Latin version has been preserved in full; of the Greek, the last fifth or so is missing. The shepherd is one of the meanings that was probably attached to some figurines of the Good Shepherd as well as a symbol for Christ, or a traditional pagan kriophoros.< Less
