The Lives of the Founders is a work written by Adrian of Jerbiton in 994. It is loosely patterned after Plutarch's Lives, being a series of biographical sketches of the twelve Founders of the Order of Hermes. The work's fidelity to facts is debated by some, but it appears to apolitical readers to be accurate, detailed and well-presented, and it has gradually become the definitive introductory work on the subject.
