Definition
to bring back to life or cause to regain consciousness — as when someone's heart is re-started after it stops or when a drowning victim is revived
  • Not that I dreamed of resuscitating Hyde; the bare idea of that would startle me to frenzy: no, it was in my own person, that I was once more tempted to trifle with my conscience; and it was as an ordinary secret sinner, that I at last fell before the assaults of temptation.
    p. 100.5
