Definition
to formally reject, give up, or turn away from

(as in to give up the power of a monarch, to change belief, behavior, support, or association)
  • But I do not remember I gave you power to consent that any thing should be omitted, and much less that any thing should be inserted; therefore, as to the latter, I do here renounce every thing of that kind; particularly a paragraph about her majesty Queen Anne, of most pious and glorious memory; although I did reverence and esteem her more than any of human species.
