Omnidoxy

ˈɑːmnidɒksɪ

noun

the founding treatise of Astronism, solely authored by the philosopher Cometan.

Extended description
At over two million words in total length, the Omnidoxy is easily the longest religious and philosophical text in history. It consists of many different styles of writing ranging from definitionalism to rhapsodicism and it includes poetry, a dictionary, an encyclopaedia, extensive philosophical musings across all major branches of philosophy, accounts of Cometan’s religious experiences, mythological stories, biographical information about Cometan, as well as various moral, eschatological, soteriological, and cosmological beliefs, ideas, and theories. The Omnidoxy’s influence on the history of Astronism is immense and is split into Core and Peripheral segments. This is particularly evidential through the description of Astronist beliefs and ideas as being either pre-omnidoxical, omnidoxical, or post-omnidoxical in origin. The Omnidoxy is the first of four major treatises of Astronism that are attributable to Cometan and is followed by the Astrodoxy.
