1.   Agricultureeconomy. Peasant. During the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.population in the life of Ukrainian lands remaineddominant agriculture, which was predominantly natural character.His traditional types were: agriculture, livestock and utility industries -fishing and beekeeping. But this time it was seen rising:introduced new equipment, including wheeled plow, from the Oral and Sohashovels. This rozoryuyutsya new land. Tireless work farmersimproved productivity of land. Continued to sow barley, rye, wheat.Significant prevalent farming and gardening. Beekeeping replacedhomestead beekeeping. Continued to develop industries, especially those thatengaged in processing agricultural products: mill (makingdifferent varieties of flour, groats), distilling (manufacture of vodka) and relatedkorchmarskyy with him. An important fishing was fishing. It flourished notonly on major rivers. Feudal lords and even the villagers built ponds in the riversstreams and wetlands. Solevarinnyam engaged in the Carpathians and the saltNorthern Black Sea lakes.

During feudalism hunting wasfeudal privilege. However, the Dnieper it were local farmers andcommoners, which brought them considerable revenue.

The changes took place in the legalpeasants. In general, it depended on the legal system in the villages: Rus(Ukrainian), walnut or German. The vast majority of ruralpopulation lived in villages of the Ruthenian (Ukrainian) law. In the fourteenth century. mostpeasants in the Ukrainian lands were free and only pay tribute byuse of land, which was distributed lanamy (dies) in between 16,8-21,4 hapeasant's yard. Dvorysche consisting of 5-10 houses (fumes), in which she livedlarge peasant family. Tax - podymne - paid from each smoke. Severalyard formed a village community (village), led by chieftain. Several villagesunited the parish - the assembly, led by the aged. At the meeting Copsconsidered all important matters. Also acted shock trial.

In addition, the legal positionpeasants were divided into two main groups: "a mortgage" (free) who were entitledmove away from feudal and "nepohozhyh (" occupied the small "), deprived of this right.During the XIV - first half of the sixteenth century. conversion process took place "slaves","Servants", "serf" (ie slaves) to dependent farmers. (Third Lithuanian Statutein 1588 turned them into a state occupied the small.)

Also, farmers were divided into differentcategory for property status. Belonged to the richest farmers served - housing,who received services for obtaining land and 02/01 drawing dies rid ofother duties. Remain free and Danes, who paid tribute to the statein kind or money. Traction farmers for land fulfilledobligation (plowing fields, sowing grain, harvesting and other works) withtheir draft animals (ox) to the state and then the feudal lords. Amongimpoverished peasants were many: a neighbor and pidsusidky who settled in the courtswealthy farmers komornyky who had rented their homes and barns, gardeners(Zahorodnyky) that possessed only the towns and halupnyky who had just houses.

Farmers pay a lot of taxes andperform various duties. The main state tax money in the GreatDuchy of Lithuania was a tax on military needs. Farmers also servedand state duties: repaired and built castles and bridges builtdams, and paved the way serving others. Church tithing is paid.

The peasants of feudal estates paidservage food or money and vidroblyaly serfdom. In the fifteenth century. boon was 14days a year from farm (dies). In 1520, Polish-day setboon for a week, and in 1557 the same set in Lithuania. In TranscarpathiansThis was a boon for two days a week. In Northern Bukovina there20 duties and taxes.

A somewhat different situation wasresidents of villages where German or Volos'ke were right. Number of villagesused the German law, in the XIV century. growing rapidly due to Germanand Polish immigrants. These immigrants (precipitator) paid a certain amount of Mr.and winning the right to form a village and post log, which became hereditary andgave him a number of privileges: concentration in the hands of the administrative andjudiciary, possession twice as large plot of land and more. These farmerspaid only servage vidroblyaly and serfdom. Villages with German law did not knowcommunity-based organizations.

From the late fourteenth century. , Galicia, andlater in other parts of rural land spread with walnut law. Residents of thesevillages merged into the community, not vidroblyaly serfdom, were mainlyhusbandry. Servage tax they paid and cattle, and were judged byancient customs and law.

During the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. wasmarked increase in large feudal tenure. At the end of XIV century.in Ukrainian lands there were dozens latyfundiy - large private propertylandholdings of the natural character of entities in whichemployed job dependent population. The main sources of growthraids were the great talents, hobbies, communalland purchase in their owners' estates, development of new lands.

The vast majority of land wasconcentrated in the possession of great magnates: Ostrozkykh Czartoryski, Radziwill(Volyn), Ruzhinskogo, Zaslavsky, Nemyrych (Kiev region, skirts), Zamoyski,Potocki, Yazlovetskis (Bratslavshchina and skirts). Concentration of land in the handsmagnates indication to their offensive in the territory and the rights of peasant communities thatmanifested in the appropriation of communal lands, enslavement of peasants appointments toelective offices of its governors and others.

Growth of large feudalindication of land ownership and qualitative changes in the forms of work organization. In the fourteenth and fifteenthArt. due to the growing demand for food (especially grain andmeat) in Western Europe was an intensive development of commodity-moneyrelations grew rapidly market agricultural products. Under these conditionslarge landowners responding to market needs, make their farmson Filvarky.
