As the founder of the Manichean religion, Mani did not play the same role in the beliefs of his community as that of Jesus Christ in Christianity. He was not the only-begotten son of God, the divine sacrifice for the sake of mankind, the only revealer of the gospel of truth. But Mani was highly praised as the founder of his church, the ultimate revealer of divine gnosis, and a model of righteous behavior, compassionate philanthropy, and brave martyrdom. He was also credited with supernatural healing power, clairvoyance, the gift of levitation, and with miraculous locomotion over considerable distances. It is certainly a later development that Mani came to be regarded as an eternal spiritual personality with a prenatal existence, and the title of the famous Greek Mani vita preserved in the Cologne Mani Codex abbrev. That is possible indeed, mainly because the development of the hagiographic stylization can sometimes be observed. One can state as a rough rule: It is the task of a critical analysis of our sources to try to establish a chronology at least a relative one of the sources and to find criteria for the historical or the legendary character of traditional dates. Another precondition for a qualified evaluation of sources with a claim to historicity is to take into consideration their literary genre and consequently their purpose.

The events of his life set forth in these texts cannot be regarded with confidence as historical, although his historical existence is accepted by scholars. He is said to have lived for 80 years, but there is considerable uncertainty concerning the date of his death. Scholarship in the 20th century limited this range considerably, with opinion generally divided between those who placed his death about bce and those who placed it as much as a century later.
Historical context The Buddha was born in Lumbini Rummin-dei , near Kapilavastu Kapilbastu on the northern edge of the Ganges River basin, an area on the periphery of the civilization of North India, in what is today southern Nepal. Scholars speculate that during the late Vedic period the peoples of the region were organized into tribal republics, ruled by a council of elders or an elected leader; the grand palaces described in the traditional accounts of the life of the Buddha are not evident among the archaeological remains.
The central Ganges basin was organized into some 16 city-states, ruled by kings, often at war with each other. The rise of these cities of central India, with their courts and their commerce, brought social, political, and economic changes that are often identified as key factors in the rise of Buddhism and other religious movements of the 6th and 5th centuries bce. Buddhist texts identify a variety of itinerant teachers who attracted groups of disciples.
Some of these taught forms of meditation , Yoga , and asceticism and set forth philosophical views, focusing often on the nature of the person and the question of whether human actions karma have future effects. Although the Buddha would become one of these teachers, Buddhists view him as quite different from the others. His place within the tradition, therefore, cannot be understood by focusing exclusively on the events of his life and times even to the extent that they are available.
Instead, he must be viewed within the context of Buddhist theories of time and history. According to Buddhist doctrine, the universe is the product of karma, the law of the cause and effect of actions, according to which virtuous actions create pleasure in the future and nonvirtuous actions create pain.

Written by Bryan Dearsley A church dedicated to St Peter is said to have stood on the site of Westminster Abbey as early as the 7th century and was given its name to distinguish it from the "Eastminster", St Mary-of-the-Graces. Since then, and until the death of George II in , most British sovereigns were buried here, along with some 3, prominent national figures. Westminster Abbey is also where most British monarchs have been crowned, and where many of them were married.
