Sébastien Antoine Tanara had a brilliant career as a diplomat in the Roman Catholic Church. Tanara was created (1695) titular bishop of Damaso and cardinal priest in the Consistory. Under pope Clement XI (1700–21), he became bishop of the Italian dioceses Frascati (1715–24) and Ostia. See: Salignac de Fénelon, 1972–2007, vol. 10, p. 180.

Tanara played a vital role in the process of informing the Holy Office of the Inquisition in Rome on Spinoza.
