Astronism in Honduras refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Honduras. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Honduras, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Honduras oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Honduras is split into eighteen departments and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Tegucigalpa.
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 Honduras including:
- Astro-Honduran philosophy
- Astro-Honduran religion
- Astro-Honduran spirituality
- Honduran astroncy
- Honduran Astronism
- Honduran astronomical religion
- Honduran Cosmism
- Honduran space religion
History of Astronism in Honduras
As of December 2020, Astronism is not recognised as a religion by the government in Honduras which has not bode well for the religious freedoms of Astronists in the country. Despite reports of societal ostracism on the basis of Astronist religious beliefs in the country, the 2020 Astronist Freedom report published by the Astronist Institution designated Honduras as apathetic rather than censorious.
Astronists currently number about 5,768 people in Honduras as a religious minority in the Central American nation. As well as this, the current lack of accurately translated Astronist materials into Spanish by 2020 is another reason for the low numbers of Astronists in the country in addition to the issues of social ostracism.
