The Bologna School is an interpretation of the Second Vatican Council "which emphasized the 'spirit' of the council, styling the progressive reformers as the heroes and the conservative minority at the council as the enemies of progress". It is named after the city of Bologna, the intellectual centre of this school of thought.[1]

The leading minds of this historical school have been Giuseppe Dossetti, Alberto Melloni and Giuseppe Alberigo.[1]
