Astronism in El Salvador refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of El Salvador. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of El Salvador, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of El Salvador oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. El Salvador is split into fourteen departments and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of San Salvador.
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 El Salvador including:
- Astro-Salvadorian philosophy
- Astro-Salvadorian religion
- Astro-Salvadorian spirituality
- Salvadorian astroncy
- Salvadorian Astronism
- Salvadorian astronomical religion
- Salvadorian Cosmism
- Salvadorian space religion
History of Astronism in El Salvador
Astronism is not currently recognised as a valid religion in El Salvador by the government, however, in the Astronist Institution's 2020 Astronist Freedom report, it designated El Salvador as apathetic. Therefore, the Institution does not consider the religious liberties of Astronists to be a risk despite their unrecognised status in the country.
As of December 2020, the number of Astronists in El Salvador was estimated at 1,321 people. This small number has largely been put down to the lack of accurate Spanish translations of Astronist materials for Salvadorans to access in 2020.
