The present status of geochronology applied to crystalline schists is outlined in the light of recent technical progress.

The specific potentialities of each of the strontium, argon and lead methods are examined in relation to the various problems in this field. This review is completed by a brief description of some examples chosen for their particular interest.

Finally the importance of a correct definition of the dated event within the orogenic sequence is underlined.
