Arguably, the only 'person' to manage that trick was Teelo Estara herself, resurrecting herself, and she needed the complete support of First Blessed to do it. And even then she was a hair's breadth from failure.

IIRC, it is hinted that the Hero Wars will bring the resurrection of Genert (dead, but sorely missed) by the Praxians, who currently get no magic from him.

I guess that finding a dead or forgotten god that enough people want to worship is difficult in Glorantha: cultures and their worshipped entities have evolved to fit with each other.
