Abstract: This article, published in Mètode is recalled that in 2015 the sesquicentennial of the Maxwell equations is celebrated. In 1865 Maxwell published an article entitled "A dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field" containing the Maxwell equations, the theoretical prediction of the existence of electromagnetic waves and electromagnetic theory of light. The article refers to Oersted, Ampere and Faraday, who laid the foundations of modern electromagnetism in the first third of the nineteenth century, concluding with the 'synthesis' of Maxwell, and in the last third of the nineteenth century, who unified light, electricity and magnetism and allowed to develop the theory of electromagnetic waves, including light.
