Ecclesiastic career

On 6 March 1645, Cybo was elevated to Cardinal by Pope Innocent X and was appointed Cardinal-Priest of Santa Pudenziana. In 1656 he was appointed Bishop of Jesi; a position he held until he resigned in 1671.

He participated in the papal conclaves of 1655, 1667, 1669–1670 and 1676. Cybo was appointed Dean of the College of Cardinals in 1687 and served until his death. As Dean presided over the Papal conclave of 1689 and the conclave of 1691.
