He served as Vice-Chancellor of the Holy Roman Church (1758-1763), Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Church (1763-1799) and Secretary of the Roman Inquisition (1777-1799). He was also bishop of Sabina (1773-1776) and Bishop of Porto e Santa Rufina (1776-1799). As Cardinal Camerlengo he participated in the papal conclave, 1769 and papal conclave, 1774-1775.

He belonged to the Zelanti faction and defended the Society of Jesus against the accusations that finally led to the suppression of this order.
