Physiognomy

The term was common in Middle English, often written as fisnamy or visnomy (as in the Tale of Beryn: “I knowe wele by thy fisnamy, thy kynd it were to stele”).

Physiognomy’s validity was once widely accepted, and it was taught in universities until the time of Henry VIII of England, who outlawed it (along with ”Palmestrye”) in 1531.
