The book, "Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview" Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview (page 18) describes notitianotitia, fiduciafiducia, and assensusassensus as being one ofthe three essential elements that make up the biblical notion of "faith."

notitia is defined as "understanding the content of the Christian faith"

fiducia is defined as "trust"

assensus is defined as "the assent of the intellect to the truth of some proposition"

I am trying to determine what the background is for each of these three words along with what their origin, context, and usage is. Where did they first appear? What is their relationship to the New Testament or the Old Testament?
