In this article the author explains the peculiar historical development of religious freedom in the Social Doctrine of the Church. Begins his exposition with the teaching of Pope Leo XIII to reach what is considered as the «Magna Carta» of the Church on religious freedom, ie Dignitatis Humanae Declaration of Vatican II. This also outlines the further development and practical implementation of the conciliar thinking about religious freedom in the teaching of Paul VI, John Paul II and Benedict XVI.
