Palmistry, Division of the Hand
Palmistry, or chiromancy, consists of studying people’s hands in order to foretell their future and decipher their personality. It seems to have originated in India from where it probably spread to China, the Arabic world, Europe, etc. For a long time it was considered a genuine science and from the fifteenth century on, works about palm reading have been regularly published in England, Italy, France and other countries.
