FORMULAE AND CHARTERS Because scribes removed most specific details from their existing documents in the process of turning them into models, formulae lack much of the precise contextual information which constitutes the most valued feature of charters, such as names, places and dates.

One might therefore expect charters and formulae to be perfect partners, and to complement each other in a neat and satisfying way. But that is not the way with early medieval history: although they have much in common with charters, formulae are not the same kind of source, and do not offer the same type of information. The question of how this evidence may be properly interpreted is thus crucial to deciding how far and in what ways formulae may be used to supplement the evidence of charters. For examples of divorce in formulae, see Formulae Andecavenses no.

32 Comparisons of this kind are not possible on the basis of individual surviving documents; formularies, on the other hand, by bringing together a broader range of texts associated with the same scribe, can help us to make more connections and distinctions, and to obtain a fuller understanding of the range of different styles a scribe could use according to what he thought was appropriate for each document. Marculf thus consistently used Romance-like forms in models for comparatively less formal private charters, but avoided them in the more elaborate royal documents in Book I.
