Of the 77 bishops of Kraków, 62 are buried in the cathedral. A crypt near the the altar of the confession of Sw. Stanisław, lie buried Bishops Marcin Szyszkowski, Jan Małachowski, Kazimierz Łubieński and Karol Skórkowski along with Cardinals Albin Dunajewski, Adam Sapieha and Franciszek Macharski. Only one space is thus currently left inside the crypt for future interment.

Kazimierz Łubieński studied at the Academy of Kraków, then headed to the Jesuit College in Rome, earning a doctorate in theology. Following his ordination to the priesthood, in 1675 he was named canon of cathedral chapter of Kraków and of the chapter of Sandomierz three years later. Named auxiliary bishop of Kraków, he received his episcopal consecration with the titular see of Heraclea in Europa on March 6, 1701. Appointed bishop of Chelm on December 14, 1705, he was promoted to the see of Kraków which had been by that period vacated for eight years. Convening a diocesan synod in 1711, he was appointed resident senator at the court of Augustus II in Warsaw in 1717.

Rebuilding Wawel's clock tower after being damaged by a storm on December 16, 1703, he oversaw the coronation of the image of Our Lady of Czestochowa, funded special scholarships for the poor of the city of Kraków who wished to undergo studies and brought to the city the Sisters of Charity. He died in office aged 67.
