This paper examines how Doctor Faustus, Christopher Marlowe's character, is a German scholar who wants to exceed the limits of traditional logic, medicine, law, and religion by practicing black magic and how, through this, he calls upon Mephistopheles, a demon who arranges a deal between Faustus and Lucifer for 24 years of power and glory in exchange for his soul. In particular, it looks at how the parade of the seven deadly sins wins Faustus' mind and will.
