Punctuation

When looking at all this Latin again, I was wondering about punctuation. Did the Romans use punctuation at all? I remember seeing the use of interpunctio. Was this the early period? On other occasions, sentences were connected through et or followed each other without any punctuation at all. Which one is the most common and does Latin actually need punctuation?

I believe in my own self... Credo in ??? ego

After reading "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco, I found that I enjoy the latin very much. It is a magical sounding language.

I understand that the Christians' Credo is "Credo in unum Deum", or "I believe in the one God." Now, I cannot state the same, since there's only one being or person in which I believe strongly -- and this is me, or more precisely: my ego, my own thinking self. ...
