In ring theory, the lifting idempotent property (LIP) is related to some important classes of rings: clean rings, exchange rings, local and semilocal rings, Gelfand rings, maximal rings, etc. Inspired by LIP, lifting properties were also defined for other algebraic structures: MV-algebras, BL-algebras, residuated lattices, abelian l-groups, congruence distributive universal algebras, etc. In this paper, we define a lifting property (LP) in commutative coherent integral quantales, structures that are a good abstraction for lattices of ideals, filters and congruences. LP generalizes all the lifting properties existing in the literature. The main tool in the study of LP in a quantale A is the reticulation of A, a bounded distributive lattice whose prime spectrum is homeomorphic to the prime spectrum of A. The principal results of the paper include a characterization theorem for quantales with LP and a characterization theorem for hyperarchimedean quantales.
