What is the term for a tsar's edict?
The Edict of Nantes may be called "an" edict of tolerance, as it promised numerous basic rights and demonstrated tolerance for French Protestants by the king, Henry IV. Signed in 1598, it should not be confused with the Edict of Versailles, signed in 1787 by Louis XVI and more commonly known as the Edict of Tolerance.
Issuing his edict is Creon's hamartia in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, the term hamartia describes an error or mistake in judgment. Theban King Creon's hamartia is issuing his edict. He knows that the edict contradicts divine will and Theban traditions of below ground burials for all Thebans. But he persists in issuing, enforcing and defending the edict, which puts him on a collision course with the gods.
