Shepherd of Hermes


Anyone know where i can find the sheps writing in Latin?


The Patrologia Graeca by Migne would have a facing-page Latin translation.

The text was originally written in Greek, by the way. Fairly simple, though weird, Greek. I would recommend the Loeb Classical Library edition of the Apostolic Fathers, vol. 2, edited and translated by Bart Ehrman. Greek on one page, Ehrman’s English on the other.



I wondered about the greek, but I was guessing those translations would have long since disappeared. Thanks so much.
