About

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Matthew 7:1-3

Faust.Com is a compilation of things Faustian. We try to emphasize public domain resources so you can continue your research on the web. Some of those materials we have made available here in one place for the convenience of readers.

Faust began as a Wikipedia scrape of topics relevant to the subject of Faust. That was an exercise in discovering what was appropriate to consider. Having done the scrape, the idea has been to replace those pages with new material.

This has been happening, but rather slowly. We approach each new subject area with the idea that replacing the Wikipedia will be fast and easy, but it never is!

Things in here may not be accurate or reflect an objective view: you shouldn’t consider this site to be a proper reference. You should only use it as a starting point for any serious research. You should also be aware that the content of this site can change at any moment, and what you find here today, may not be here tomorrow.

Where articles have been taken or modified from public sources we have indicated the reference, and provided a link for you to access the original article. An example follows:

What’s with the spelling?

This site is written in Ambivalent Canadian English (ACE), and provides a bridge between Standard American Vernacular (SAV) and Incomprehensible British (IB), enabling all of the English language group to understand and interact with one another on a daily basis.

Spellings are derived from SAV and IB as needed for effect.

Words like “anaemia” may be preferred over “anemia” if they seem to fit better or give a more appropriate impression, like making us look smarter, or conversely we’ll avoid a usage like “learnt” over “learned” because it makes us sound dumber than if we used “learned,” which, on reflection, also makes us sound dumb.

Sometimes we’ll choose a spelling like “penalize” with a “z” because it sounds scarier than “penalise,” and sometimes we’ll use a spelling like “neighbour” because it seems friendlier.
