Summary/Abstract: The Church of St Anne is an unpublished and less well explored monument of the early nineteenth-century in Bulgaria. It was built in the cemetery of the village of Yana, district of Sofia. The paper seeks to present the church comprehensively, making some observations about the historic records, architectural specifics and the iconographic programme of an unpublished monument of the first half of the nineteenth century. The extant paintings of 1845 are not signed, but the iconographic and stylistic particularities refer to a group of monuments associated with Yanachko Stanimirov from village of Breze.
