Dr. Faustus Scene 2: Before Faustus' House

Two scholars, both Faustus' colleagues at the university, wonder why he has not been at school. Upon spotting Wagner, they ask him about Faustus' whereabouts. Wagner is artful and evasive with his answer, but finally tells them that his master is at dinner with Valdes and Cornelius. The two scholars note how Valdes and Cornelius are infamous for their involvement with black magic. One of them suggests they go tell the rector of the university so that he can dissuade Faustus. The other fears that Faustus is already beyond the point of dissuasion.
