The article contains an examination of the Early Christian

church at the Bičina site in Polača, which was researched in

1898 and 1913. The excavations conducted in 1913 were

entrusted to Fr. Kažimir Perković, a priest from Polača, by

Fr. Luka Jelić. The ground plan of the church and sketches

of the fragments of discovered church furnishings, made in

1914 and held in the Maps Archive of the Conservation Department

in Split, are presented. They were made by the Zadar

conservator Tamino at the behest of Fr. Jelić. The ground

plan is compared with the one made in 1971, which Boris

Ilkovac published, using the sketches and letters of Kažimir

Perković from the Luka Jelić Archives in the Archaeological

Museum in Split. The sketches of pieces of church furnishings

are compared with the items found at the same site,

today held in the Local Heritage Museum in Biograd.
