Astronism in Monaco refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Principality of Monaco. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Monaco, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Monaco oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Monaco is split into ten wards and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in Monte Carlo, which will also be the only observatory in the principality.
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 Monaco including:
- Astro-Monégasque philosophy
- Astro-Monégasque religion
- Astro-Monégasque spirituality
- Monégasque astroncy
- Monégasque Astronism
- Monégasque astronomical religion
- Monégasque Cosmism
- Monégasque space religion
History of Astronism in Monaco
As of December 2020, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of Monaco. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2020 report called the Demographics of Astronism, Monaco had a total of 4 Astronists living there, up from zero in the previous year.
A significant barrier to the further spread of Astronism in the country is the lack of accurate translations of Astronist materials in the dominant language of the nation. As of late 2020, the Omnidoxy had not been translated into the most widely spoken language of Monaco which remains an issue for Astronists there.
