Also referred to as "chiromancy", palmistry is a very old practice and was of interest in ancient Greece and Rome, where it was used in medical diagnosis and character evaluation. Aristotle reportedly became fascinated with palmistry when he came across a missing treatise on the subject and shared the information with his pupil, Alexander the Great. The practice continued in medieval Europe and flourished in the Renaissance with the production of printed texts with illustrations.  Texts from the 1500s on the subject of Palmistry maybe still be found in museums and rare collections.
