First start by going over the wiki article on Master pages:
the whole idea is that you can have as many as you want.
Also see:
from the Get Started With Scribus tutorial.

To change a particular textframe content, you would have to edit the 
Master page as shown in the wiki.
Depending on your needs, you could have a number of Master pages with 
slight variations to exchange as needed, but each page can only have one 
Master Page applied at a time.
