Faus·ti·an - relating to or resembling Faust, a German astronomer and necromancer reputed to have sold his soul to the Devil. (of, relating to, or characteristic of Faust : a Faustian novel.)
2. sacrificing spiritual values for power, knowledge, or material gain: a Faustian pact with the Devil.



Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend, based on the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–1540).

Faust is an erudite who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, which leads him to make a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. "Faust" and the adjective "Faustian" imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a delimited term.
