Anamnesis


Anamnesis

"Anamnesis" (, 1 Corinthians bibleverse-nb|1|Corinthians|11:24-25|KJV) and can refer either to the memorial character of the Eucharist itself [ [http://www.friendsofpedro.net/main/CFC/CFCGlossary.html Friends of Pedro] ] or to the part of the service where the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus are remembered. [ [http://www.marthomachurch.org.uk/stjames/liturgies.htm Mar Thoma Church] ]

For example, in the Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom, the anamnesis begins with the words::Remembering, therefore, this command of the Saviour [i.e., to eat and drink in remembrance of him] and all that came to pass for our sake, the cross, the tomb, the resurrection on the third day, the ascension into heaven, the enthronement at the right hand of the Father and the second, glorious coming... [ [http://www.ocf.org/OrthodoxPage/liturgy/liturgy.html The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostomos] The Orthodox Christian Page] This phrase precedes the epiklesis, when the priest asks God to send the Holy Spirit to change the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, other services besides the Divine Liturgy will have an anamnesis, such as the Great Sanctification of Waters at Theophany.

In most western Christian traditions, on the other hand, the anamnesis comes after the epiklesis. [ [http://www.catholicgbg.org/tasteandseeweb/resources/hometab/liturgicalterms.html catholicbg.org] ]

"An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church" says of the anamnesis: "This memorial prayer of remembrance recalls for the worshipping community past events in their tradition of faith that are formative for their identity and self-understanding" and makes particular mention of its place in "the various eucharistic prayers".
