A religious ceremony, whereby any person or thing is solemnly consecrated, or set apart to the service of God and the purposes of religion. The use of dedications is very ancient, both among the worshippers of the true God, and among the heathens. In the Scripture we meet with dedications of the tabernacle, altars, &c. Under Christianity dedication is only applied to a church, and is properly the consecration thereof.

See CONSECRATION.
