Résumé : This paper edits and comments a charter from Guy, archbishop of Rheims (1033-1055), giving to the monks of St. Vincent of Laon an altar dedicated to saint Quentin and located in the pagus of Mouzon. In his work on the episcopal acts of Rheims, Patrick Demouy considered this charter as lost and suspect. On the basis of short scholarly mentions, he dated it from the years 1044-1048. However, thanks to the rediscovery of two copies from the 18th century (kept at Paris at the Bibliothèque nationale), we can submit the act to a full diplomatic study which demonstrates its authenticity and suggests a more precise dating (around 1048). This analysis also reveals some clues concerning the monastery's cartularies and archive management up to the modern period. The form of Guy's charter resembles an act of Gebuin, bishop of Laon (around 1031-1049), also to St. Vincent. The foundation of this monastery in the Mouzonnais, during the 1040s, proves the collaboration between king Henri ist and the episcopate of the northern part of his kingdom, in order to protect the religious communities. But St. Vincent's temporal in the diocese of Rheims remained limited to some isolated properties.
