To Found A Religion?

I came across this the other day. The author was speaking of Christianity and Buddhism. I wondered whether it applied to pagan religions.

"To become the founder of a religion one must be psychologically infallible in one's knowledge of a certain average type of souls who have not yet recognized that they belong together. It is he (Or should that read she???) that brings them together. The founding of a religion therefore always becomes a long festival of recognition-" Nietzsche: The Gay Science" Bk. 5 353.
