Astronism in the Faroe Islands refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Danish territory of the Faroe Islands. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of the Faroe Islands which is itself under the jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Denmark, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Faroe Islands oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. The Faroe Islands are split into thirty municipalities and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Tórshavn.
This national branch of 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 the Faroe Islands including:
- Astro-Faroese philosophy
- Astro-Faroese religion
- Astro-Faroese spirituality
- Faroese astroncy
- Faroese Astronism
- Faroese astronomical religion
- Faroese Cosmism
- Faroese space religion
