The"Working with Frames" section of the manual which comes with Scribus

Since version 1.3.5 Scribus contains a powerful new feature called
Render Frames. Originally planned as a means to insert formulas into
Scribus documents, the inventor, Hermann Kraus, has enabled the
creation of almost any kind of special typesetting, like formulas,
musical notation or chess notation, from within Scribus. The trick here
is that Scribus uses other programs in the background. It imports their
output into a special frame type called Render Frames. 

While this feature is extremely versatile, you must not forget that the
use of it requires knowledge of the markup codes required by a
particular program. These commands are beyond the scope of the Scribus
