Historical Background

Faust is a character from Early Modern European literature. Faust has become the archetype for people who make a pact with the Devil to gain something, usually knowledge or power. Faust first appeared in literature in Historia von D. Iohan Fausten by Anonymous (1587), apparently based off of real German alchemist Dr. Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480-1540), a notorious figure (one account tells of him in prison offering to show the chaplain how to remove facial hair without a razor using wine... laced with arsenic which stripped not only the hair, but the skin as well). Contemporaries of Dr. Faust, like Martin Luther, wrote of their belief that he had made a deal with the Devil. This inspired Christopher Marlowe to write The Tragic History of Doctor Faustus (first decade of 1600s). This in turn inspired Faust, Part 1 (1808) by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The basic story is: An alchemist named Faust who has no real skills in his profession summons the Devil (in the form of Mephistopheles/Mephisto) and makes a deal with them, where he will serve Faust for a certain period of time, offering him supernatural knowledge and material items, but it will cost Faust his soul. The story symbolizes how pride, vanity, and swindling will invariably doom a person. The adjective faustian has entered the English language as any act involving hubris or arrogance which will doom a person. It should be noted there was a similar tale in Poland, only the figure was named Pan Twardowski.
