Astronism in Equatorial Guinea refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Equatorial Guinea, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Equatorial Guinea oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Equatorial Guinea is split into seven provinces and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Malabo.
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 Equatorial Guinea including:
- Astro-Equatorial Guinean philosophy
- Astro-Equatorial Guinean religion
- Astro-Equatorial Guinean spirituality
- Equatorial Guinean astroncy
- Equatorial Guinean Astronism
- Equatorial Guinean astronomical religion
- Equatorial Guinean Cosmism
- Equatorial Guinean space religion
History of Astronism in Equatorial Guinea
Astronism is currently not recognised as a religion in Equatorial Guinea and the Astronist Institution has designated the situation as censorious, thus demonstrating considerable concern for the religious liberties of Astronists in the republic.
Beyond the restrictions enforced by the Equatorial Guinean government, Astronists are also unable to access the full array of materials on Astronism due to a lack of accurate translations of such materials in Spanish, the most widely spoken language in the country.
As of December 2020, Astronists in Equatorial Guinea number only 69 according to figures produced by the Astronist Institution in its report on the demographics of Astronism.
