Back to: Dr Faustus by Christopher Marlowe Summary
Act 3 begins with the speech of chorus. Faustus learns the secrets of astronomy by studying “the clouds, the planets, the stars, the tropic zones etc”. He is about to arrive in Rome to see the Pope and his court and also to witness St. Peter’s feast.
He arrives in Rome and becomes invisible. He plays tricks on the Pope who is at feast. It shows his anti-religious and anti-christian attitude.
