Kierkegaard was a fideist, while I am not. I don't oppose reason to faith or faith to reason. But I don't believe that the object of faith is knowable in this state otherwise than by faith itself: this is the Christian view, not a fideist one.
Fideism has multiple levels though, right ? To be honest I am not that clear on what fideism actually is.
I thought that at its core it simply says that faith and reason are separate. My understanding is that faith does not have to be in opposition or hostile to reason and/or vice versa, although, that is or can be part of it.
I'm not really up to date on this philosophy. I could be thinking about this incorrectly.
