La « seconde pancarte » de Fontenay en contexte : reconstitution de l’original perdu et interprétation des modèles diplomatiques

Abstract : Social practices determine the written production, not only in the given place and time of its creation, but also during its transmission. As a rich and multiform object, pancartas may enlighten the social part of scribal practices as well as the formal and textual models and their influence or alteration. Through the comparison of contexts and the changing practices of writing between the early 12th c. and the 13th c., we can reconstruct the second pancarta of Fontenay (circa 1140-1148), both for its formatting and its text. It was written on the front and back, most probably on two or four columns, with headings between the charters and no opening list of chapters. The diplomatic formulas are minimized (neither invocation nor notification nor arenga) and adapted to the local context from the papal chancery. Yet this is an unusual object : a double pancarta with two independent confirmations, each of which being written in the lower margin on one side. This study shows how changing social practices leads to misunderstanding of the cartulary maker, which increases the deformation between the two registers (pancarta and cartulary). These distortions, in turn, are the very measure of historical distance and cultural change.
