ASSENT', n. L. assensus, from assentior, to assent, of ad and sentio, to thing.

1. The act of the mind in admitting, or agreeing to, the truth of a proposition.

Faith is the assent to any proposition, on the credit of the proposer.

2. Consent agreement to a proposal, respecting some right or interest as, the bill before the house has the assent of a great majority of the members.

The distinction between assent and consent seems to be this: assent is the agreement to an abstract proposition. We assent to a statement, but we do not consent to it. Consent is an agreement to some proposal or measure which affects the rights or interest of the consenter. We consent to a proposal of marriage. This distinction however is not always observed. See Consent.

3. Accord agreement. 2 Chronicles 18 .
