Astronic canonicity is the central subject of the dispositional discipline of study known as oeuvology which deals with the study of the Canon of Astronism. Astronic canonicity explores the requirements for a text to become classified as part of the Astronist canon as well as dealing with the organisation of the canon into different segments.
In the context of the Astronic canonicity, titularity relates to the requirement of a text to be added to the Canon of Astronism that it hold a unique title to demonstrate its role in relation to Astronism. This title is referred to as the titular and can be identified through its use of the -icon suffix.
Also important is the function of the text which consists of an adjective exclusively used in relation to a particular text. This function is almost always used in preference from the titular as it is more descriptive and clear as to the role of the text.
The classification of the nature of a text in the Astronist canon is of importance due to the different types of texts that find there inclusion into the Canon of Astronism. These different natures include:
- Revelatory –– texts whose creation has been made through divine revelation.
- Surographic –– texts whose creation has come about through the abilities of surography of its author.
- Academic –– texts whose authorship rests with an academic or scholar.
# – Book – Function – Nature – Titular – Role in relation to Astronism
1 – Omnidoxy – Founding text – Surographic - Protonicon – The Omnidoxy holds the function of being the founding book of Astronism and the introducer of many of its beliefs, terms, and philosophical notions.
