Title
The Politics of Codification: The Lower Canadian Civil Code of 1866
Abstract
The author interprets the codification of the Civil law as part of a profound ideological shift in Lower Canadian society that gave priority to exchange and individual property rights. He examines the formation of the commission set up to undertake the codification, the work of the codifiers, and the reaction of Lower Canada’s anglophone minority and the Roman Catholic hierarchy to the project.
