Latin Translation: Have Faith

by Alessandra
(UK)

Dear Latin Teacher,


How would you translate "Have Faith" into Latin?

Thanks, Alessandra


Dear Alessandra,

The simplest Latin phrase for have faith is fidem tene. To make it plural, i.e. speak to more than one person, it is fidem tenete.

For a few more details, and an audio file, see this earlier post on Latin Vocabulary.

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher!

Sincerely,

John

Another question: Own your faith
by: Anonymous

Dear Latin teacher,

How would you translate "own your faith" (as an instruction)?

Thanks


Dear Anonymous,

Try this: fidem suam tene. It means literally "keep possession of your faith."

Hope this helps, and thank you for contributing!

Sincerely,

John
