Fideism

A view which assumes that knowledge originates in a fundamental act of faith, independent of rational presuppositions. Though the term in this form dates only from about 1885 when it was associated with and adapted by French theologians, the standpoint represented by it had several times been officially condemned during the pontificate of Gregory XVI (1831-46).
