The name the scourge of god was given to Atilla by the church to explain why Rome could not beat them, and god did not protect them. So they said he was a punishment for their sins.


And then certain Wester European Christians began to "flail" or beat their own bodies to contain the "sin" that allowed such terror to enter their nations!

Flagallation, spelling be damned, is a regular part of Christian history! As is "self mutilation!"

As is the "mutliation" of their enemies!

I.e., the taking of their "eyes", or "ears", or "hands" or "Penisuses" (damn the plural), or "hands", or "balls", etc.!

Sometimes even "self mutilation" was considered as sacred!

Which doesn't make sense when you consider it was the sin of the people they were being punished for, not their personal ones, but people do stupid things.

It is pretty sure, if one believes in Atilla at all, that he did not give a rats ass, about any gods, but only in gold, etc.!

Yeah I'm sorry but I've never bought the story that Pope Leo convinced him to turn away.
