To Crúcify. v.a. [crucifigo, Latin.] To put to death by nailing the hands and feet to a cross set upright.

They crucify to themselves the son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. Hebr. vi. 6.

But to the cross he nails thy enemies,
The law that is against thee, and the sins
Of all mankind, with him there crucify'd.
Milt. Par. Lost.
