The Pandectist Jurisprudence and its Historical Background. This prolonged critique will observe carefully an undoutedly important and timely enterprise initiated by H.-P. Haferkamp and T. Repgen to understand the Pandectist legal thinking immanently which has been often blocked for its rather pejorative reputation such as too conceptual, too systematic, too abstract and lifeless etc. It will be shown that this significant first step must be surely continued – only with far more attentiveness. Especially one must read the overall complex structure of the Pandectist legal thinking almost with a seismographic sensitiveness and simultaneously with due respect to the general and long-term historical background.
The Zeitschrift für Rechtsgeschichte (ZRG, also known as the Savigny Journal) represents an integral part of European legal history research, having made a significant contribution to the current state of the discipline.
