Bona Fide


bona fide

Bona fide in Latin means  “in good faith”,  is good, honest intention or belief.

In law, it is the mental and moral state of honesty, conviction as to the truth or falsehood of a proposition or body of opinion, or as to the rectitude or depravity of a line of conduct. This concept is important in law, especially equitable matters.

In contemporary English, bona fides is sometimes used as a synonym for credentials, background of documentation of a person’s identity.  “Show me your bona fide” can mean;  “Why should i trust you (your good faith in this matter. Tell me who you are).  In this sense, the phrase is sometimes used in job advertisements, and should not be confused with the bona fide occupational qualifications.
