By Noah Webster.
By William Dodge Lewis, Edgar Arthur Singer
That which is uttered or proclaimed by authority as a rule of action: an order issued by a prince to his subjects, as a rule or law requiring obedience: a proclamation of command or prohibition; as, the edicts of the Roman emperors, the edicts of the French monarchs. "Edicts, properly speaking, cannot exist in Great Britain, because the enacting of laws is lodged in the parliament, and not in the sovereign," says Ogilvie. There is no such thing as an edict in U.S. This is also a Scotch ecclesiastical term for various proclamations or notices made of certain things which a church court has resolved upon doing.
