Fidelia: Faith in The Faerie Queene

Last updated:

Fidelia is a daughter of Caelia in the first book of The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser.

Her name is close to the Latin for “faith”, and she is the first to meet with the Redcrosse knight to help him heal.

Together with her sisters, representing hope and charity, they are able to heal him and make him holy.
