Chronology of Cometan

by Astronist Institution

DEC. 9, 2019

Follow the life of Cometan through a detailed chronology of the major events that took place during the life of the Founder of Astronism.

A chronology of Cometan aims to establish a timeline for the events of the life of Cometan, often intertwined with the events surrounding the formation and subsequent establishment and dissemination of Astronism.


The chronology of Cometan and the chronology of Astronism were intertwined with one another, especially so during the founding of the latter. The very early history of Astronism is unsurprisingly linked to the life of Cometan hence Cometanic chronology exists alongside Astronist chronology during the founder's lifetime.


As made distinct from the incumbency of Cometan which only deals with the figure's public ministry, Cometanic chronology encompasses Cometan's private life both before and during his public life.
