This paper provides a brief but concise analysis of Christian elements in Beowulf, and seeks to determine whether it was originally Christian in tone, or altered later by a second author.

From the Paper:

"The religious significance of the epic poem Beowulf has been argued for more than 150 years. Though it would be both unfair and arrogant to take only one side in the disagreement, the incredible variety of opinions and theories that have accumulated over the years provides greater opportunity for insight into a dispute that will continue for years to come. However, scholars are constantly utilizing new archaeological and historical evidence, as well as reasoning in an attempt to religiously categorize the tale."
