Portrait Palazzo Gallarati-Scotti 

 

This page is a stub.  You can.  You can help improve it.

On 20 September 1785 Giovani Filippo Gallarati Scotti arrived in Malta after 7 days of travel. On his arrival, his predecessor Inquisitor Zondadori was still on the island, both officially greeting the Grand Master on the same day.

During his time in office, Scotti had to bear with De Rohan’s pretensions of being briefed about all the cases presented to him, thus causing disagreement. Both Inquisitor and Grand Master had to face the repels generated by the French Revolution as more Knights started to confide in the Deists’ religion and freethinking.

Scotti was sensitive and believed in God’s will. He cancelled the monastic vows of five Magdalene nuns after learning that they had taken the vows against their will, and empathised with Don Gaetano Mannarino who was arrested for the rise of the priests of 1775.

Following his days in Malta, Giovanni Filippo Gallarati Scotti was on 23 February 1801, nominated Cardinal of San Lorenzo. (Note discrepancy with the list below)

Notes:

•  The link between the Douglas Scotti and the Gallarati Scotti has yet to be determined. I have seen a statement that the Gallarati Scotti do not have Scotti blood.  They added the surname Scotti only for adoption by a "stepfather".  Maybe this article should not be in the Douglas Archives?
