    Default pin one's faith on somebody (something)

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    And from then on Ernest pinned his faith on revolution.

    pin one’s faith on somebody (something) = place reliance on somebody (something)

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
