I am not one to ask about religion. I’m not very knowledgeable about religion at all, but I noticed in Beowulf that while there is some Paganism, he definitely seems more Christian. To start, there are many, many God references throughout the piece, including in Chapter X: “Put to sleep with the sword, that sea-going travelers. No longer thereafter were hindered from sailing. The foam-dashing currents. Came a light from the east, God’s beautiful beacon; the billows subsided…” Beowulf mentions God’s support and fortune throughout the story. He believes that God will do whatever he can to help Beowulf defeat Grendel and Grendel’s mother, even though Beowulf is the only one who can kill the beasts. While Beowulf could have been selfish, he is constantly thanking and referencing God. The poet/author definitely seems Christian too, and that leads us to believe that he/she wanted Beowulf to be a strong Christian representative. Hrogthar is similar to Jesus Christ in the sense that he calls on Beowulf to save their city and kill Grendel. I would go with Team Saint for this particular example.

    I agree with your assertion that Beowulf has both pagan and christian parts. But Beowulf does call on God’s support and fortune throughout the entire poem. Also there was a comment about Grendel not being able to win because God did not will it to happen.
