 To understand the interest of the history of law it is enough to read these few lines of introduction of the Dalloz Repertory of the 19th century! "There are few studies as interesting and as useful as the history of law. It is full of fruitful teachings for the philosopher, the historian and the jurisconsult (...) But the knowledge of it is especially necessary to the true jurisconsult, to penetrate the true meaning and to understand the real scope of the civil institutions of his time; because the present, even after the deepest moral or social revolutions, is always attached to the past by powerful links, which one cannot break without reducing it to being itself an enigma".
