During the early part of the nineteenth century, most critics viewed Beowulf as anti-Christian since it Christianized Germanic Folklore (Cain, 2).

According to tradition, Beowulf came to be told by a Christian poet albeit the story has a pagan undercurrent (i.e. Grendel the monster was depicted as evil and not the traditional satanic evil of the Christian text).

...Christianity, "God" provided the people of Beowulf's time with an explanation for good and evil and an afterlife for the souls of those who followed God. As later generations attempted to incorporate their Christian beliefs, the text "abounds with inserted narratives" (Breizmann 1030). When Grendel terrorizes the mead hall, the explanation is that, "He was spawned in that slime,/Conceived by a pair of those monsters born/ Of Cain" ( 104-106). This Christian theme reappears several times in the epic, and when Beowulf is dying, he says, "I can die, here,/ Knowing the Lord of all life has never/Watched me wash my sword in blood/Born of my own family" (274-43). .

It gives scholars a glimpse into the language spoken in Britain at the time, it is a perhaps unique example of the oral tradition of poetry that has been written down and, as this analysis will consider, it mixes together both Pagan and Christian elements in a remarkable manner. This mixture reflects the fact that Britain had been Christianized at the time it was written (the 6th and 7th Centuries), yet also had the vestiges of strong pagan traditions that survive to the present day. This paper will argue that Beowulf is improved by the bricoleur attitude towards a religious/philosophical outlook within... A fascinating epic poem...

While examining the character of Beowulf through his characterization, there are two major forms of identities that are given to him.
