Cultural elements

Astronism in Uzbekistan refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Uzbekistan. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Uzbekistan, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.

The Astronist Superiate of Uzbekistan oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Uzbekistan is split into twelve provinces and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Tashkent.

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.

Other terms

Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Uzbekistan including:

  • Astro-Uzbek philosophy
  • Astro-Uzbek religion
  • Astro-Uzbek spirituality
  • Uzbek astroncy
  • Uzbek Astronism
  • Uzbek astronomical religion
  • Uzbek Cosmism
  • Uzbek space religion
  • Uzbeco-Astronism

History of Astronism in Uzbekistan

In its 2020 Astronist Freedom report, the Astronist Institution designated the religious liberties for Astronists in Uzbekistan as terminal, the worst ranking a country can receive. The government in Uzbekistan is not tolerant of religious minorities and Astronism has not been recognised as a religion in the country.

Only a very small proportion of Uzbeks are Astronists, numbering 200 people as of December 2020 figures obtained by the Astronist Institution, a figure that doubled from the year before. Furthermore, Astronist content had not yet been translated into the Uzbek language as of late 2020 which presented another barrier to Uzbeks having access to materials on Astronism.
