Summary/Abstract: The Swiss Federal Assembly adopted the Swiss Civil Code on 19 December 1907 by roll-call vote and by unanimity of the members present. The code came into force on January 1, 1912. It was welcomed throughout the country as the "written will" of the Swiss. According to Prof. Walter Yung, the code strengthens the "Swiss feeling of being one people" and becomes one of the "spiritual treasures" of the country. Considered an example of clarity, simplicity and moderation, the Swiss Civil Code was soon reflected abroad and inspired the civil codification of many countries. Based on German legal sources, it "retains its characteristic appearance and combines a deep knowledge with purity of form, which provide the basis for an extraordinary flexibility, able to change according to all future changes, without losing its basic structure." The article consistently examines the origins and main sources on which the Swiss Civil Code is based, as well as its impact.
