We analyze the convergence properties of operator product expansions (OPE)
for Lorentzian CFT four-point functions of scalar operators. We give a complete
classification of Lorentzian four-point configurations. All configurations in
each class have the same OPE convergence properties in s-, t- and u-channels.
We give tables including the information of OPE convergence for all classes.
Our work justifies that in a subset of the configuration space, Lorentzian CFT
four-point functions are genuine analytic functions. Our results are valid for
unitary CFTs in $d\geq2$. Our work also provides some Lorentzian regions where
one can do bootstrap analysis in the sense of functions.
