For Japanese-English dictionary, see EDICT.

An edict is an announcement of a law, often associated with monarchism. The Pope and various micronational leaders are currently the only persons who still issue edicts.

Notable edicts[edit]

  • Edict of Paris (614), by Clotaire II of Neustria. It tried to establish order by standardising the appointment process for public officials across the realm. It guaranteed the nobility their ancient rights, and in this respect has been seen as a French Magna Carta.
  • Sakoku Edict of 1635. This Sakoku Edict (Sakoku-rei, 鎖国令) of 1635 was the third of a series issued by Tokugawa Iemitsu (徳川 家光), shogun (将軍) of Japan from 1623 to 1651. The Edict of 1635 is considered a prime example of the Japanese desire for seclusion. This decree is one of the many acts that were written by Iemitsu to eliminate Catholic influence, and enforced strict government rules and regulations to impose these ideas. The Edict of 1635 was written to the two commissioners of Nagasaki (長崎), a port city located in southwestern Japan.
  • A French edict by Finance Minister Colbert (17th century) was intended to improve the quality of cloth. This law declared that if a merchant's cloth was not found to be satisfactory on three separate occasions, then he was to be tied to a post with the cloth attached to him.
