Giovanni Domenico de Cupis (Cupi, Cuppi) (1493-1553) was an Italian Cardinal, created by Pope Leo X in the consistory of July 1, 1517.

He was Crown-cardinal of Scotland[1]. He was a friend of Ignatius Loyola[2].

His mother was Lucrezia Normanni, who had had a daughter Felice della Rovere by Pope Julius II before marrying Bernardino de Cupis, Giovanni Domenico's father. He owed early advancement as Bishop of Trani to Julius.[3]

He was Bishop of Albano in 1531, Bishop of Sabina in 1532, Bishop of Porto e Santa Rufina in 1535 and Bishop of Ostia in 1537. Dean of the College of Cardinals in 1541.
