Faust - Etching by Rembrandt - Credit: Rembrandt
Faust or Faustus (Latin for "auspicious" or "lucky", but also German for "fist") is the protagonist of a classic German legend who makes a deal with the Devil to exchange his soul for knowledge. Faust
's tale is the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works. Faust, and the adjective Faustian, are often used to describe an unsavoury, ultimately self-destructive arrangement, the proverbial "deal with the devil". The terms can also refer to an unquenchable thirst for knowledge.
A compendium is a concise, yet comprehensive compilation of a body of knowledge. A compendium may summarize a larger work.
