Hermas

Additional Links
(huhr' muhss) Christian to whom Paul sent greetings (Romans 16:14 ). His name, the variant spelling of the Greek god Hermes, may indicate he was a slave, since many slaves were named for gods. Some have tried to identify him with the author of “The Shepherd of Hermas,” but that is not likely. See Apostolic Fathers .
