THE FAUST LEGENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 19 January 1886
THE FAUST LEGENDS. Br IT. Se. ,ax Cnascs. To reach the origin of this fascinating story we must go back beyond the Dr. Faustus of the sixteenth century, and we may dismiss once and for all.the myth of the monks, who fathered the tricks of that gentleman upon John Fast, the printer, in revenge for his abominable inventio' which did away with the art of illuminationt and th6 copying of manuscripts, not to' mention a few little superstitions 'that ob '.soured the truth in the Middle ages. The basis of the story of Faust is, of course, the belief in. the existence of formal contracts between man and. the? Prince of Darkness, concerning which there are scores of legends. And ii is curious that in .old times the devil is very often reported as being outwittod and getting the worst of it,' though possibly in later days his Satanic .Majesty has turned .the tables upon us. Mr. Dasent tells us that. his. notion of making unholy bar-, gains was first heard of in the middle of the thirteenth ce...
