The Huns believed all divine spirits that governed nature had a big impact on the future. They were polytheistic and they used soothsayers to read and interpret omens. Attila was known to repeat the story of a sword found by a shepherd given to him that he believed was the Roman god of war Mars’ and had contributed to his military success. They worshipped sacred trees and they performed sacrifices to honor gods of fire and water. One of the most important rites in their religion were burial practices that involved fighting, mutilation by self inflicted dagger wounds to honor warriors felled in battle, not by “feminine lamentations” They did not have a certain place of worship. They did allow other religions. They were great lovers of Christians, so they must have allowed that religion. In fact a lot of Huns converted to Christianity because they loved that religion so much. They did not have priests.
