Abstract (in english)
   Rb-Sr isotopic systems of muscovite-plagioclase pairs and of biotite from a pegmatite emplaced into polyphase deformed schists showing Barrovian-type mineral assemblages yield ages that constrain the timing of three episodes in the Teplá-Barrandian complex in the Bohemian Massif of the western Czech Republic. (1) Muscovite-plagioclase ages of 502 4 and 500 3 Ma are considered to represent cooling through ca.500°C after a rapid crystallization of pegmatite which is part of widespread granitic magmatism in late Cambrian times; ages of 492 3 and 491 3 Ma are interpreted as reflecting very limited opening of the isotopic systems. (2) A biotite age of ca.373 Ma is interpreted as giving a Mid-Devonian (Givetian) time of foliation development in the pegmatite and foliation reactivation in the host rocks, during a tectonothermal event at an early stage of the Hercynian episode.
   (3) The age of pegmatite emplacement gives an upper (younger) age limit for the polyphase tectonothermal episode (interpreted as the Caledonian episode) during which the regionally expressed Barrovian zones in the Teplá-Barrandian complex were developed. The ages are linked to specific events in the field-based structural-metamorphic-igneous sequence of events that constrains their relative order of formation in the overall geological history of the Bohemian Forest tectonic domain
