Astronism in Palestine refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the State of Palestine, including the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of the Palestinian Territories, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of the Palestinian Territories oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Palestine is split into sixteen administrative divisions and holds one Grand Observatory in the city of Ramallah.
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 Palestine including:
- Astro-Palestinian philosophy
- Astro-Palestinian religion
- Astro-Palestinian spirituality
- Palestinian astroncy
- Palestinian Astronism
- Palestinian astronomical religion
- Palestinian Cosmism
- Palestinian space religion
- Palestinian Tanwir
History of Astronism in Palestine
Astronism is currently unrecognised by the government of Palestine as a religion and its presence in the country is limited only to a digital form. The Omnidoxy is currently untranslated to Arabic and so the only way for Palestinians to learn about Astronism is through the digital presence of Cometan and Astronism.org. As of 2020, the number of Astronists living in Palestine totals 540, up from 300 Palestinian Astronists recorded in 2019.
