Climax - The climax is the scene at the Cathedral where the prison chaplain indicts K.; preaching from the pulpit, to K. as an individual, There is no gathering. The priest tries to make K. aware and sensitize him to his fall and also the Fall of Man.

Outcome - The novel is a tragedy. K. loses his urge to resist. The guards kill him.
