    im Glauben

    Im Glauben fliegen zu können sprang er aus dem Fenster.

    In the belief that he could fly, he jumped out the window.

    Believing he could fly, he jumped out the window
    "In the belief" sounds really strange/wrong to me

    Convinced he could fly...

    would work, too.

    @Dan: not widely used, possibly; wrong, no. (Sometimes I use phrases that were current when I was growing up but not widely used today, especially if they are a close parallel in translation. But then I grew up actually understanding the King James Version of the Bible.)

    Viking warriors harnessed the arcane powers of the runes even in war. Runic inscriptions on swords entreated the gods either to protect the sword's owner or bring pain and misery to his enemy. The berserkers, whose reckless behavior on the battlefield gave rise to the word 'beserk,' may owe their reputation in part to the runes. These warriors customarily carved the runic symbol for Tyr, the god of war, onto their shields. They would then charge fearlessly into battle, in the belief that nothing could overcome the power of the runes.
