In the Jaina canon there are various passages in which paṇḍita-maraṇa is contrasted with bāla-maraṇa; see Schubring, Die Lehre der Jainas, p. 182. I am certain that in among other Buddhist texts the Suttanipāta, similar passages with the bāla-paṇḍita pair may be found.

A colleague has asked about the history of the term “paṇḍita” and in particular whether it is found used early on to refer to a persons who is clever or wise without necessarily being a learned person in a formal way.
