The Cathedral of the Marshes
3. Christ falls for the first time: Wormword Scrubs: off Scrubs Lane towards Hammersmith Hospital.
Christ is beaten in broad daylight, on a crisp bright autumn morning, within sight of the industrial plant-sized Hospital. This savage beating is carried out by a blue figure in a football strip. It is the action of the predatory bully, unimpeded by scruples over the damage being caused.
