Smith's Bible Dictionary
Hermas

(Mercury), the name of a Christian resident at Rome to whom St. Paul sends greetings in his Epistle to the Romans. (Romans 16:14) (A.D. 55.) Irenaeus, Tertullian and Origen agree in attributing to him the work called The shepherd . It was never received into the canon, but yet was generally cited with respect only second to that which was paid to the authoritative books of the New Testament.

ATS Bible Dictionary
Hermas

A Christian at Rome, Romans 16:14; supposed by some to have been the writer of the ancient work called "The Shepherd of Hermas"-a singular mixture of truth and piety with folly and superstition.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Mercury, a Roman Christian to whom Paul sends greetings (Romans 16:14). Some suppose him to have been the author of the celebrated religious romance called The Shepherd, but it is very probable that that work is the production of a later generation.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
HERMAS

hur'-mas (Hermas): An abbreviated form of several names, e.g. Hermagoras, Hermeros, Hermodorus, Hermogenes, etc.; the name of a Roman Christian to whom Paul sent greetings (Romans 16:14). Origen and some later writers have identified him with the author of The Pastor of Hermas, but without sufficient reason. According to the Canon of Muratori, the author of The Pastor wrote when his brother Pius was bishop of Rome (140-55 A.D.). He speaks of himself, however, as a contemporary of Clement of Rome (chapter 4) (circa 100 A.D.). The name Hermas is very common, and Origen's identification is purely conjectural.
