This paper investigates quantum logic from the perspective of categorical logic, and starts from minimal assumptions, namely the existence of involutions/daggers and kernels. The resulting structures turn out to (1) encompass many examples of interest, such as categories of relations, partial injections, Hilbert spaces (also modulo phase), and Boolean algebras, and (2) have interesting categorical/logical/ordertheoretic properties, in terms of kernel fibrations, such as existence of pullbacks, factorisation, orthomodularity, atomicity and completeness. For instance, the Sasaki hook and andthen connectives are obtained, as adjoints, via the existentialpullback adjunction between fibres. 1

Two fundamental contributions to categorical quantum mechanics are presented. First, we generalize the CPconstruction, that turns any dagger compact category into one with completely positive maps, to arbitrary dimension. Second, we axiomatize when a given category is the result of this construction. 1
