Alois Dempf (1891-1982) was professor of philosophy at the University of Vienna and at the University of Munich. In 1938 the National-Socialist regime in Austria banned him from  eaching as a political opponent. Dempf followed the values of the democratic catholicism and as a student in Bonn was active in a cultural group in the area of the Zentrumspartei. In  his studies, he highlighted the main philosophical and political characteristics of the spiritual movements of the Church in the Middle Ages. He claimed that a rebirth of a spiritual  Church in his contemporary could provided a criterion for the orientation of the political catholicism according to a democratic perspective, creating also a barrier against to the  nationalisms. From his point of view, the Church first had to address the problem of her understanding of the modernity. This paper presents also the Dempf’s historiographical idea  on the philosophical and political role of the Church in Europe.
