Adscript

Encyclopedia from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adscript (from Latin ad, "on" or "to", and scribere, "to write") means something written after, as opposed to subscript which means written under.[1]

A laborer was called an "adscript of the soil" (adscriptus glebae) when he could be sold or transferred with the land, as under feudal villeinage and with serfdom in the Russian Empire until 1861.[1]
