The Narrator’s Role in Ideology in Beowulf Ideology in Beowulf is greatly impacted by the narrator due to his tendency to refer to religion. The narrator has the ability to describe what Beowulf, Hrothgar, Beowulf’s non-human antagonists say, and comment on their actions. The narrator also frequently makes connections between history and the battles that Beowulf fights throughout the poem. Being told in third person point of view, the narrator often uses foreshadowing and flashbacks which suggest that he passionately believes in Christianity although the characters actions oppose. Beowulf reflects on his life as a child for the first time (Heaney 2428-2433) near the end of the poem.

Voltaire on Religious Tolerance During the age of Enlightenment many people, especially those belonging to the middle class, began writing against the way society lived. Many people also wrote against the church and the way the church wanted to run things. Voltaire always spoke against the church but he also believed in religious tolerance because in the end he was raised with religious beliefs that could not be forgotten. Just like John Huss and Martin Luther, Voltaire received punishment for trying to unmask the church although what they spoke the truth. This is why I believe he started this piece talking about an Irish priest who wrote a pamphlet on religious tolerance.
