Early years and Education

Educated in his native city and later at the University of Cusco, he taught theology and law at the seminary of Arequipa. He traveled to Spain and witnessed the resistance to the Napoleonic invasion. When he returned to Peru he was named rector of the College of Medicine of San Fernando.

War of Independence

He then participated in the efforts for the independence of Peru and was the president of the first Constituent Congress of 1822 and wrote the constitution of 1823. After José de San Martín renounced as the "Protector of Peru", Luna de Pizaro was chosen as interim President until the investiture of José de La Mar.

He supported the government of La Mar but, after the Junta which La Mar presided was dissolved, he retired from political life. In 1827, he once again became President of Congress and, in accordance with his functions, he once again was briefly chosen as interim President of Peru in 1833 until the investiture of General Luis José de Orbegoso y Moncada.

In 1846 he was named archbishop of Lima.
