Astronism in Finland refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Finland. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Finland, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Finland oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Finland is split into nineteen regions and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Helsinki.
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 Finland including:
- Astro-Finnish philosophy
- Astro-Finnish religion
- Astro-Finnish spirituality
- Finnish astroncy
- Finnish Astronism
- Finnish astronomical religion
- Finnish Cosmism
- Finnish space religion
History of Astronism in Finland
Astronism is not currently recognised a valid religious group in Finland although religious freedoms for Astronists are generally practiced through the society. Astronists are free to express their beliefs in public without fear of repression.
Astronists number 1,890 in Finland as of December 2020 according to demographic reports published by the Astronist Institution. The translation of Astronist content into Finnish had not yet occurred by 2020 which poses a significant barrier to Finnish people accessing the full range of Astronist materials.
