2 actions - in the sub ordinate clause followed by that believe and the belief that is no longer believed. Hence what is no longer believed takes the had.

(A) believed.
missing auxiliary verb
(B) is believed.
new believe surpasses the old belief hence present tense is incorrect. we are talking about the old belief
(C) was believed before.
before is unnecessary
(D) they have believed before.
before is unnecessary
(E) had been believed.
Correct
