For the Romans, FIDES was an essential element in the character of a man of public affairs, and a necessary constituent element of all social and political transactions (perhaps = 'good faith').
FIDES was always reciprocal and mutual, and implied both privileges and responsibilities on both sides.
The Romans had a saying, "Punica fides" (the reliability of a Carthaginian) which for them represented the highest degree of treachery: the word of a Carthaginian (like Hannibal) was not to be trusted, nor could a Carthaginian be relied on to maintain his political elationships.

 Fides et Ratio - Faith and Reason - Encyclical Pope John Paul II
The censures were delivered even-handedly: on the one hand, fideism (59) and radical traditionalism,(60) for their distrust of reason's natural capacities, and, on the other, rationalism (61) and ontologism (62) because they attributed to natural reason a knowledge which only the light of faith could confer.
There are also signs of a resurgence of fideism, which fails to recognize the importance of rational knowledge and philosophical discourse for the understanding of faith, indeed for the very possibility of belief in God.
Other modes of latent fideism appear in the scant consideration accorded to speculative theology, and in disdain for the classical philosophy from which the terms of both the understanding of faith and the actual formulation of dogma have been drawn.

Then, too, belief in the Trinity may be implicitly included in the dogma of God's existence, and belief in the Incarnation in the dogma of the Divine providence, just as the immortality of the soul is implicitly included in the dogma of an eternal reward.
This necessity (necessitas medii) arises per accidens, and is suspended only by a Divine dispention in cases of extreme necessity, where such an act of faith is either physically or morally impossible, as in the case of pagans or those dying in a state of unconsciousness.
Manifestly this did not bring him the peace and comfort for which he had hoped, and at least it brought no conviction to his mind; for many times, in a spirit of honesty and sheer good nature, he applauded good works, but recognized them only as necessary concomitants, not as efficient dispositions, for justification.

I want to discuss the place of Fides et Ratio within the parameters of the 20th century Thomistic revival.
Hence, proponents of Teilhard de Chardin and of Liberation Theology in their attempts to harmonize faith and science or faith and politics could all claim to be following the recommendations of the Church to do “the kind” of thing done so exemplarily by Aquinas.
His clear preference and recommendation is that the actus essendi discovery of 20th century Thomistic scholarship and its development in Existential Thomism be not eclipsed from philosophical discussion at century’s end.

 Fides et Ratio: A 'Radical' Vision of Intellectual Inquiry
Further, the exercise of authority over inquiry by the community at large is part and parcel of a social conception of intellectual inquiry that will have been internalized by the inquirers in their education, and so they will be at least antecedently predisposed to see this authority as a helpful guide rather than a threat.
As regards the material character of the exercise of this authority, John Paul explains in Chapter V of Fides et Ratio that interventions on the part of the communal teaching authority of the Church are usually negative, warning against tendencies that might lead inquirers outside the bounds of orthodoxy.
See chapters 5 and 6 of Fides et Ratio, where the Holy Father defends magisterial interventions and also argues that the Catholic Church, because of the universality of its message, has been more successful than any other historical institution in interweaving the universalist claims of the Gospel with indigenous human cultures.

Abske Fides was formed in mid-2003 as a project between Nihil (guitars) and Cokkhammer (bass) with intention of mixing a taciturnity, hateful, gloomy, depressive and psycho-melancholic sound with an heretical, nihilist and misantropic lyricism totally untied with human values.
Songs were composed and the band was practising with help of guest musicians until end of 2003 when Cokkhammer left Abske Fides (name created by himself, and adapted from Latin, that means quot;faithless", in a reference to the skepticism that conducts the lyrics) for unknown reasons.
Despite of that, Nihil goes on with the project by himself, composing and practising with different musicians and n July/2004 the band decides to record using the material, that until then, they had.

 Notes on Fides et Ratio
Editor's Note: Fides et Ratio is to my mind Pope John Paul II's most radical encyclical to date, surpassing in its own way even the astonishingly countercultural Evangelium Vitae.
For now I simply offer a quickly formulated guide to the encylical, including extensive quotations, that is meant to put the reader in a positition to see the document as a whole and to understand how the various parts are ordered to one another and to the whole.
In particular, the Holy Father reaffirms Vatican I's condemnation of fideism and radical traditionalism for their denigration of reason's natural powers and of rationalism and ontologism for granting to natural reason capacities which we have only by faith.
