Anamnesis is one of the central categories in the liturgy of the Roman-Catholic Church. But it is more than a purely conscious phenomenon. It is acting with the intention of keeping a tradition alive. This tradition gives a redeeming value to the re-enactment of past events. The purpose of the article is to show how 'anamnesis' of the Gospel is related to the terms of 'zikaron' and 'azkara' of the Jewish Bible.
