From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Experto crede is a Latin motto which literally means "believe one who has had experience". It is usually used by an author as an aside to the reader, and may be loosely translated as: "trust me", "trust the expert", "believe one who has tried it", or "have faith in experience".

In the form experto credite it is a quotation from the Aeneid by Virgil (Part XI, Line 283).

When "Crede" is followed by a personal name (e.g., Crede John Smith), the expert in question is the name given.
