Enjoy learning about one of the earliest English works, Beowulf, as you work through Progeny Press' Christian literature study guide on this epic poem.

Beowulf chronicles a hero's exploits as northern European clans teeter between Christianity and old religions. A monster, Grendel, has attacked the hall of King Hrothgar, bringing death and chaos for 12 years. With boldness and God's help, Beowulf, hero of the Geats, travels to the land of the Danes to repeatedly free them from evil's grasp, burning his name into the pages of history.
