Holman Bible Dictionary - Memorial
Something which serves as a reminder. Scripture witnesses to God's participation in human history for the salvation of God's people. Memorials to such events reinforced faith and provided opportunities for teaching. God's covenant name (Yahweh) was to be a “memorial name” (Exodus 3:15 NAS), a reminder of God's liberation of God's people. The Passover served as a similar reminder ( Exodus 12:14 ; Exodus 13:9 ). The twelve stones taken from the Jordan's bed served as a reminder of God's provision of passage across the Jordan (Joshua 4:7 ). In the New Testament, the Lord's Supper serves as a reminder of Christ's sacrificial death and an encouragement of His future coming (Matthew 26:13 ; Mark 14:9 ; 1 Corinthians 11:25-26 ). All these memorials serve to “proclaim” the good news of what God has done.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Memorial Brasses
Deeply incised sheets of a hard alloy of brass, called latten, used on account of their durability, as memorial slabs over graves in churches; or let into the wall of churches as memorials, from about the 13th to the 18th century, in England and on the Continent. They were usually engraved with a life-sized effigy of the person commemorated and the accurate representation of the costumes and the armorial bearings, together with the border inscription, makes a valuable record for antiquarians. The lines were often filled in with a black substance, or in some cases with a black or red enamel; more rarely bright, varicolored enamels were used. Iconoclasm after the Reformation, vandalism, and neglect, have contributed to the disappearance of most of the brasses in Germany, France, and in Flanders where some think the art originated and where existing specimens are unusually fine. Even in England, where they were especially numerous in the eastern counties, there are only about 4,000 left. Among the best of those still existing are those of Sir John d'Aubernoun, at Stoke d'Abernon, Surrey (1277); of Nicholas, Lord Burnell, at Acton Burnell, Shropshire (1382); and of Thomas Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, and his wife Margaret, formerly in Saint Mary's church, Warwick (1401).

Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Memorial
The concept of "remembering" recurs prominently in the Bible, particularly in the Old Testament. God remembers his covenant with his people, whereupon God's people are enjoined to remember him. Remembering, frequently placed in opposition to "forgetting, " focuses not only upon the past, but upon the present and future as well (Ecclesiastes 11:8 ).
God Remembering . In the Old Testament God may remember to have mercy or to judge. God's covenant with his people lies behind each occasion of God's memory, whether for grace or retribution. God's remembrance often yields forgiveness (Jeremiah 31:34 ). Calling on God to remember his people (or an individual) is the essence of prayer. When God recalls iniquity, remembering is synonymous with pronouncing judgment (Psalm 109:14 ; Hosea 7:2 ). Not remembering the memory of the wicked is one of God's ultimate expressions of judgment (Psalm 34:16 ) in contrast to the memory of the upright, which is a blessing (Proverbs 10:7 ).
Human Remembrance of God . The most prevalent use of remembrance in the Bible is the command to remember the Lord and his mighty deeds. No biblical book utilizes this motif more fully than Deuteronomy, where God exhorted the people to remember him, the exodus, and the wilderness experience in order to prepare themselves for the conquest of Canaan. Even the Shema (6:4-12) stresses remembering the Lord as the fundamental element in the Israelites' theological education.
Psalm 105 is entirely devoted to rehearsing God's wondrous deeds. Ezekiel provides another notable example, but he often uses memory to chastise Israel for her sins (16:60-63).
Perhaps the single most significant expression of remembering God rests with God's self-disclosure through his name (Exodus 3:14-15 ). Israel must remember their God as the "God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, " the "I am, " forever.
The "memorial" is equivalent to a "sign" in the Bible. Numerous items and institutions serve as a reminder of Yahweh. The rainbow, which portended God's promise, symbolized the Noahic covenant; phylacteries recalled the Law (Exodus 13:16 ); and the Sabbath commemorated God's rest from his creative activity (Exodus 20:8-11 ).
Finally, even the gospel represents the recollection of God's mightiest act of salvation. This memory is epitomized in the Lord's Supper (1 Corinthians 11:24-25 ) whose purpose is to lead believers to recall the atoning work of Christ.

Apostates - As we regarded the singular Memorial we thought of Judas and Demas, and then, as we heard in spirit the Master's warning word, 'One of you shall betray me,' we asked within our soul the solemn question, 'Lord, is it I?' Every one's eve rests longer upon the one dark vacancy than upon any one of the many fine portraits of the merchant monarchs; and so the apostates of the church are far more frequently the theme of the world's talk than the thousands of good men and true who adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things

Brazen Serpent - It had been kept from the days of Moses, in memory of a miracle, in the same manner as the pot of manna was: and Asa and Jehoshaphat did not extirpate it when they rooted out idolatry, because in their reign they did not observe that the people worshipped this serpent, or burnt incense to it; and therefore they left it as a Memorial. But Hezekiah thought fit to take it quite away, when he abolished other idolatry, because in the time of his father they adored it as an idol; and though pious people, among them accounted it only as a Memorial of a wonderful work, yet he judged it better to abolish it, though the memory of the miracle should happen to be lost, than suffer it to remain, and leave the Israelites in danger to commit idolatry hereafter with it

Lord's Supper (ii) - It records our Lord’s words with reference to the bread: ‘This is my body, which is for you: this do as my Memorial’; and with reference to the cup: ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as oft as ye drink it, as my Memorial. ...
(b) The meaning of ‘This cup is the new covenant’; ‘this do, as oft as ye drink it, as my Memorial. ) ‘memorial. In relation to the context, however, it will be held to be appropriate or inappropriate to the idea of sacrifice according as the suggestion of sacrifice is recognized or ignored in the general surroundings of the Last Supper and in the words ‘covenant’ and ‘memorial. ) The primary thought suggested in the word ‘memorial’ (ἀνάμνησις) is that of a Memorial before God, though without excluding the idea of a memento to man. In Wisdom of Solomon 16:6 it denotes a reminder to man; in the other four passages it denotes a Memorial before God. When all the circumstances are taken into account, the thought most naturally suggested is that of a Memorial of Christ presented by Christians before the Father, which is at the same time a memento to themselves. If so, the idea differs little from that way of regarding the Eucharist in much Greek theology, whereby it is viewed as the act in which the Church remembers Christ and in remembering Him makes the Memorial of Him before the Father. In the sentences ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as oft as ye drink it, as my Memorial,’ then, our Lord associated with the command for the observance of the rite which He instituted, indications that by means of it Christians would have access to His high-priestly work on the cross and in heaven, and would possess a Memorial before God and a memento to themselves. ’ The words in connexion with the species of bread are the same as those in 1 Corinthians 11:24, already discussed, and do not need further comment, except to notice that Mark does not add ‘which is for you: this do as my Memorial. in that (1) he has ‘this is my blood of the covenant’ instead of ‘this is the new covenant in my blood’; (2) he omits ‘this do, as oft as ye drink it, as my Memorial’; (3) he adds ‘which is poured out for many’; (4) he adds ‘Verily I say unto you, I will no more drink of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God. Paul in 1 Corinthians 11:25; (β) the consideration of the omission of ‘which is for you: this do as my Memorial,’ ‘this do, as oft as ye drink it, as my Memorial,’ does not belong to this section of the article; (γ) the words ‘for many,’ i

( a ) For reasons that will appear at a later stage, our survey may start from the stone erected over a grave or elsewhere as a Memorial of the dead.

Lord's Supper, the - eucharistein/eulogein) and the Eucharistic Assembly (synaxis); from its Jewish-Christian origins, it is the Breaking of Bread and the Memorial of the Lord's passion and resurrection; in patristic development, it is the Holy Sacrifice because it mysteriously makes present the one, unique sacrifice of Christ and includes the church's offering; also it is the Holy and Divine Liturgy because the whole worship of the church finds its center in the celebration of this Sacred Mystery. So the Lord's Supper is both a proclamation and a remembrance (memorial) of what God the Father has done in his Son, Jesus Christ, just as the Passover is a proclamation and a remembrance of what Yahweh did for Israel through the slaughter of the lambs in Egypt. ...
The key theological elements of the Lord's Supper as it was celebrated in the early church are: (1) the proclamation of the death of Jesus through "memorial" and "remembrance" and a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving; (2) the inauguration of the new covenant in the sacrificial blood of Jesus; (3) the participation and fellowship in Christ unto the Father, and with one another in Christ; (4) the experiencing the firstfruit of the joy of the eschatological kingdom of God; (5) the presence of the Spirit of the Father to vivify; and (6) the presence of faith, which is faithful and obedient, in the hearts of believers

Since part of the frankincense put upon the bread was to be burnt on the altar for a Memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the Lord; and since Aaron and his sons were to eat it in the holy place, Leviticus 24:5-9 , it is probable that this bread typified Christ, first presented as a sacrifice to Jehovah, and then becoming spiritual food to such as in and through him are spiritual priests to God, even his Father, Revelation 1:6 ; Revelation 5:10 ; Revelation 20:6 ; 1 Peter 2:5

It was the Memorial of national redemption

And then, ye mothers among us, what amazing self-control that was in God-my-glory, the mother of Miriam and Moses
Psalms - As hymns immediately addressed to the Deity, they reduce righteousness to practice; and while we acquire the sentiments, we perform the offices of piety; while we supplicate for blessings, we celebrate the Memorial of former mercies; and while in the exercise of devotion, faith is enlivened by the display of prophecy. The Psalms, thus applied, have advantages which no fresh compositions, however finely executed, can possibly have; since, beside their incomparable fitness to express our sentiments, they are at the same time Memorials of, and appeals to, former mercies and deliverances; they are acknowledgments of prophecies accomplished; they point out the connection between the old and new dispensations, thereby teaching us to admire and adore the wisdom of God displayed in both, and furnishing while we read or sing them, an inexhaustible variety of the noblest matter that can engage the contemplations of man

Helena, Saint, Mother of Constantine the Great - were struck at Constantinople and Treves as Memorials after her death, and Theodora was also similarly commemorated, to mark the reconciliation of the two branches of the family.
