He was an Ecclesiasticus and Peruvian government representative.

He was born in Huancarqui (Peru) to Andrés Rodríguez de Olmedo and Victorina Martínez del Pino. In 1786 he traveled to Spain to study at the University of Alcalá de Henares, where he obtained a doctorate in theology. In 1797 he was appointed half canon of the cathedral of La Plata (Sucre, Bolivia), becoming a canon in 1804 and a secular canon in 1814.

He was the Government Representative of Charcas in the Cadiz Cortes (parliament), where he took office on the 5th of April 1813. In his speeches he always showed a firm commitment to the Spanish crown. During the legislature he defended the maintenance of the privileges of the University Of San Francisco Javier de La Plata and creating in Potosi of a special court of mining. He was also a Representative of Buenos Aires in the Cortes of 1813.

In the last months of the constitutional period he took a position in favor of the re-establishment of absolutism, a trajectory that culminated in his being one of the signatories of the Manifesto of the Persians. He later focused exclusively on his ecclesiastical career. In 1817 he was appointed Bishop of Puerto Rico and, in 1825, Archbishop of Cuba and Primate of the Indies. He obtained the great crosses of the orders of Carlos III and Isabella the Catholic.
