The term "serf", in the sense of an unfree peasant of the Russian Empire, is the usual translation of Template:Lang (Template:Lang) which meant an unfree person who, unlike a slave, could be sold only with the land he or she was "attached" to. Historic legal documents of the epoch, such as Russkaya Pravda (12th century onwards), distinguished several degrees of feudal dependency of peasants.
