Astronism in Ecuador refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Ecuador. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Ecuador, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Ecuador oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Ecuador is split into twenty-four provinces and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Quito.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory. It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Ecuador including:
- Astro-Ecuadorian philosophy
- Astro-Ecuadorian religion
- Astro-Ecuadorian spirituality
- Ecuadorian astroncy
- Ecuadorian Astronism
- Ecuadorian astronomical religion
- Ecuadorian Cosmism
- Ecuadorian space religion
History of Astronism in Ecuador
Astronism is not currently recognised by the Ecuadorian government, but the Astronist Institution has designated the religious liberties in the country as apathetic due to limited concerns of Astronist religious freedom in the country.
The lack of accurate Spanish translations of the full array of Astronist content has presented a significant barrier to accessibility to materials on Astronism. As of December 2020, the number of Astronists in Ecuador has been estimated at 1,785, who are mainly concentrated in the capital city of Quito.
