God not mentioned

beowulf-ABVOEK

What is one possible explanation for a dearth of references to God in the last 124 lines of the epic, despite the fact that they are describing Beowulf's funeral?

A

God has abandoned Beowulf.

B

Beowulf does not need God now that he's dying and dead.

C

Beowulf is likely a Pagan. It is best to leave God out of this section.

D

Beowulf's fate is so clear that no mention of God is needed.

E

The Christian transcribers simply couldn't figure out a natural-sounding way to work God into these lines.
