Students have studied the lives of several founders: Moses and Abraham for Judaism, Jesus for Christianity, Muhammad for Islam, Vardhamana or the Mahavira for Jainism, Siddhartha Gautama or the Buddha for Buddhism, and Guru Nanak for Sikhism. What, if anything, do these founders have in common? What differentiates these founders from one another? Do they all acquire special titles? Are the all involved in or attached to miracle stories? Do they all have charisma? Do they have rather unconventional family lives? Do they show signs of experiencing mid-life crises?
