List of people who have been considered avatars

This is a list of figures, of various faiths, who are considered to be avatars of a deity or higher being by either themselves, their followers, or by others. The status of these figures as avatars may or may not be widely accepted. This list does not include the ten avatars of Vishnu as their religious status is widely accepted and fixed within Hinduism. [Garuda Purana (1.86.10-11) ]
