Summary/Abstract: The article considers the remains of the church built in the first half of the 14th century in the citadel of Novogrudok, excavated by the author in 1960—1970 s. It is the earliest known church built in the territory of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the 14th century. The results of the detailed archaeological study of the architectural monument are published for the first time. The church is considered in the context of the architectural history of the West Russian lands in the period from the mid 13th century to the mid 14th century. The study of the building materials and techniques enables firm dating of the church to the first half of the 14th century. The article is illustrated by field photos and drawings as well as reconstructions.
