The aim of this paper is to present a formulary preserved in the Special Collections of the „Lucian Blaga” Central University Library (Cluj-Napoca). The formulary was compiled by the clerks of the chancery of the Principality of Transylvania in the last decade of the 16th century – consequently we can call it an „offi cial” formulary –, and it was used both in the cancellaria maior and cancellaria minor „branches” of this institution. The manuscript contains almost 400 model documents prepared by the clerks in order to create the most useful possible collection for their own use. In the process of converting the original documents into formulae they removed from the charters the most specifi c details (e.g. names of person, place-names, dates), and preserved only those elements, which were indispensable for the compilation of new charters. In some cases however occurs individual data, on the basis of which the charters used as sources of the formulae can be dated. The formulary give us insights into the day-to-day activity of the chancery, help us to reconstitute the process of turning documents into formulae, as well as formulae into documents.
