Response to church excavated in 1916


I do not know of a church with that name at Ani. Everything about the archaeological work that happened at Ani during WW1 is a bit uncertain. And not all the minor ruined churches visible at Ani are shown on Marr's 1930s map (and many of those shown are not given names). Rather than an actual excavation done in 1916, it could have been a survey done in 1916 of a previously unsurveyed and unnamed church that was given this name after the survey. Another possibility is that it might be a name given to one of the lesser structures attached to the Pahlavuni-founded Church of the Apostles. Is there an indication of where in Ani it is located?

I have not heard of the 1918 Chubinov book you cite. Was it one of the Museum of Ani publications? A reworking of Orbeli's 1910 Catalogue of the Ani Museum?
