The Shepherd of Hermas (Highly, Highly Abridged Edition)

This afternoon, I gave a brief presentation on the Shepherd of Hermas as part of Prof. Robin Darling Young’s seminar on reading practices in early Christianity.  Because many members of this particular seminar aren’t specialists in this period, I prepared a handout (complete with pictures!) to provide some additional background.  If anyone’s looking for an introduction to a fascinating apocalyptic text (and it is apocalyptic, no matter what some scholars may tell you), check it out here. I hope it’s useful!
