Abstract: For a fiber bundle with a finite cohomology dimension and $ 1$-connected base $ B$ and $ 1$-connected fiber $ F$, we obtain the homology of the section space by an $ {E^1}$-spectral sequence. In the "stable" range the $ {E^1}$-terms are the homology of a product of Eilenberg-Mac Lane space of type $ K({H^{p - i}}(B;{\pi _p}F),i)$ (the same as those of the $ {E^1}$-spectral sequences which converges to the homology of the functional space $ \operatorname{Hom} (B,F)$ [10]). The differential is the product of two operations: one appears in the $ {E^1}$-spectral sequence, which converges to the homology of $ \operatorname{Hom} (B,F)$; the second one is a "cup-product" determined by the fiber structure of the bundle. This spectral sequence is obtained by a Moore-Postnikov tower of the fiber, which generalizes Kahn's methods [9].
