"Do this as My Memorial": The Semantic and Conceptual Background and Value of Anamnēsis in 1 Corinthians 11:24-25

Front Cover
Gregorian Biblical BookShop, 1982 - Religion - 332 pages
This is a study of the text of the institution of the Eucharist as found in 1 Corinthians 11: 24-25. Explicating the consensus opinion that the text is a cult formula or communion liturgy, the author demonstrates why, in understanding and translating the world ..., care must be taken to include all the potentialities for cultic memorial meaning that would probably have attached to the word at the time and in the context in which Paul used it. The most likely attitudes of Paul and is communities in respect of interpretation and historical understanding, of theology, cosmology, and sacramentalism are determined, since their attitudes in these spheres should have been consonant with their understanding of specifically memorial terminology.
