The Shepherd is a very important witness of history of the early Christian thought and it was so widely-read that it was immediately translated into Latin and other languages. Despite the considerable amount of Greek textual witnesses of the Shepherd more than twenty-five written between the 2nd and the 14th century , its complete text did not survive until today, therefore its translations in other languages are of crucial importance for the constitutio textus. The last critical edition of the Vulgata was made by H. Hilgenfeld in and is still quoted by scholars today. The Shepherd of Hermas in Latin offers a more modern and complete philological study through an investigation of new unknown textual sources from 9th to 14th century and gives new philological and textual data with the aim to replace the accurate but not updated edition of Hilgenfeld.
