Out of the description, this work will also reveal the poem as being epic, religion being the central theme.
The first character drawn out of the poem is that humans are religious, believing in the existence of God. The power of God surpasses all others, which makes the Danes in the poem to hope for his protection of them. God is responsible for a number of good deeds to his people, for instance, He is responsible for the protection of the throne of the King against attacks by Grendel. There are lines in the poem, which stress the fact that the monster tormented them every night in its pursuit of human blood. During the day, the creature was witty enough to remain hidden in the marshes. Even while he attacked, he Grendel did dare the throne of the king. (Rafael 45, lines 80-84).
According to the poem, God has the power to deliver his righteous people from bondage. Beowulf delivered the Danes from the oppression of the monster because he had a divine anointing of God. The monster possessed supernatural characteristics, which only God could fight. Beowulf recounts that his previous battle victories came because of the protection of God. He says that he would do himself little justice if he went to war carrying a sword and a shield because he hoped God would decide his fate (Rafael 48, lines 170-174).
There are a series of other instances when the power of God comes to the forefront as a super being. He is the center of morality because he alone will judge all the other beings. Using Grendel in the poem, the poet manages to depict the people as being religious. There is no doubt in the poets work that God will deliver his persons of all oppressions. For this case, those who are unreligious will meet the wrath of God, which is a common teaching in many religions. There is a conclusion in the poem that those who do not obey will go to hell while the religious faithfuls will reach heaven (Rafael 45, lines 90-95).
