Astronism in Benin refers to the presence of the Astronist religion from Benin.
Astro-Beninese philosophy, or Beninese Astronism, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Republic of Benin under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Benin, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Benin oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Benin is split into twelve departments and is set to hod one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Porto Novo.
History of Astronism in Benin
Astronists are not currently recognised by the government as a valid religious group in Benin which means that they are not granted official protections by the government. However, Benin holds a positive record with religious tolerance, even for religions not officially recognised by the government, which means that Astronists are generally safe to profess their beliefs without fear of repression.
As of 2019, the Omnidoxy has not yet been translated into French, the most widely spoken language in Benin, which has also made it difficult for Beninese people to access Astronist content on digital platforms. Despite, Astronism exists primarily as a digital religion.
