Abstract

Call a non-Moufang Bol loop \emph{minimally non-Moufang} if every proper subloop is Moufang and \emph{minimally nonassociative} if every proper subloop is associative. We prove that these concepts are the same for Bol loops which are nilpotent of class two and in which certain associators square to $1$. In the process, we derive many commutator and associator identities which hold in such loops.
