Dr Faustus is a play that has a variety of christian motifs and images. Faustus is a scholar who seems to be disillusioned by the available sources of learning that are available to him. he wants to study the dark arts. the play is about choices that man makes and their consequences. he moves further away from heaven when he signs a pact with the devil. his greed for material objects moves him further away from heaven and towards hell. (which is what i think you meant instead of hill). hope this helps
