'Mephistophilis murders a scholar, video clip' by art+power

Faustus has had serious doubts about his life and the contract he has signed. A wise old scholar tells him that there is still hope for him to escape, but Mephistophilis suddenly appears and threatens to torture Faustus.

Faustus is afraid and tells Mephistophilis to kill the scholar instead.

The scholar has lived a good life, so Mephistophilis cannot take her soul into hell - he can only kill her body.

This video clip shows the murder take place. As the scholar dies, she tells Faustus that he is a fool, and that he has lost everything in his quest for power and glory.
