Astronism in Vatican City refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in Vatican City State. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under exiled management and jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Vatican City, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution which, in contrast other superiates, primarily deals with Astronia-Holy See relations; the relations between the Astronist Institution and the Roman Catholic Church. This typically entails the discussion of issues regarding the syncretism of both religions, resulting in the development of Astro-Catholicism.
The Astronist Superiate of Vatican City conducts direct communications with the Holy See and various Catholic organisations in the discussion and dissemination of Astro-Catholic literatures, in the restoration of churches, and on other issues concerning the two entities for mutual benefit.
This subsidiary of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation, depiction, and interactions on the side of Astronism with Roman Catholicism. It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to Astronism 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.
