Özet

This paper intends to re-investigate the so-called church of St. Clement in Ankara, in terms of topography, architecture and art history, within the historical context of Byzantine Ankara. It also aims to discuss and interpret certain aspects of this building, which often remained outside the context of those conventional typological and chronological considerations, and thus attempts to restore the history of this church, and its possible building phases, in the light of archaeological and textual evidence from the 4th to the 9th centuries.
