Abstract (in english)
   The Brno Batholith, a part of the larger Brunovistulian Unit, consists of three genetically independent complexes, Western Granitoid Complex (part of the Thaya Terrane), Ophiolite Belt (formerly Metabasite Zone or Central Basic Belt), and Eastern Granitoid Complex (part of the Slavkov Terrane). The field with geochronological evidence indicate younger age of both granitoid complexes compared with the ophiolite. The composition of the Eastern Granitoid Complex (not newly studied in this paper) points to a relatively primitive Cadomian volcanic-arc environment. The Ophiolite Belt comprises a tilted segment of an almost complete metamorphosed ophiolite sequence with lithologically and geochemically obvious suprasubduction signature. Three main granite suites, with distinct S, I, and A type affinities, are exposed in the Western Granitoid Complex.
