 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 lessons for the philosopher, the historian and the jurisconsult. (...) But knowledge of it is especially necessary for the true jurisconsult, in order to penetrate the true meaning and understand the real scope of the civil institutions of his time; for the present, even after the most profound moral or social revolutions, is always linked to the past by powerful ties, which cannot be broken without reducing it to an enigma itself.
