Marianna Gonzaga


4th MARQUIS OF MAGLIANO

The fourth Marquis of Magliano was to be Ippolito III, but having died in 1729, the succession went to his brother Guido. Ippolitò III married in 1727 Marianna Gonzaga (1706-1758) with whom he had no sons. Hippolytus III died only after two years of marriage.

Ecce Agnus

Lamb of God ( Agnus Dei )Ecclesiastical Latin is a title for Jesus that appears in the Gospel of John. It appears at John 1:29, where John the Baptist sees Jesus and exclaims, "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world." It appears again in John 1:36.


The theme of a sacrificial lamb which rises in victory as the Resurrected Christ was employed in early Christology.
