This review was written for the section Looking Back of the publication Excerpts from Zentralblatt Math (this section has new reviews of classical books and papers).

In the review, I tried to place the Seminar in it historical context.

The review will be reprinted in the Newsletter of the European Mathematical Society 2013 (March or June).
