Apparently, their is a tradition in China that every approx' 500 years a sage shall appear. This tradition - of which Confucious, Mencius, and Sima Qian (author of the Shiji or Book of History) are supposed to be part - is mentioned and confirmed by Sima Qian in the Shiji.

Could anyone tell me where I can find out more about this tradition, and share with me any thoughts you have on how this tradition can be reconciled with the Baha'i concept of progressive revelation?

Thank you!
