Puritans also used Faith as part of longer phrase names, such as be-faithful, faithful, faith-my-joy, and fight-the-good-fight-of-faith. In Roman religion, Fides was the goddess of trust. Her temple on the Capitol was where the Roman Senate signed and kept state treaties with foreign countries, and where Fides protected them. Saint Fidenzio lived in the second century A.D. Historically he was considered the third bishop of the diocese of Padua (166 to 168), after Saint Prosdocimo and Saint Massimo.
