The Speculum Humanae Salvationis or Mirror of Human Salvation was a bestselling anonymous illustrated work of popular theology in the late Middle Ages , part of the genre of encyclopedic speculum literature , in this case concentrating on the medieval theory of typology , whereby the events of the Old Testament prefigured, or foretold, the events of the New Testament. The original version is in rhyming Latin verse, and contains a series of New Testament events each with three Old Testament ones that prefigure it. It is one of the most common books found as an illuminated manuscript , and also in early printing in both blockbook and incunabulum forms. After a short Prologue two pages and Prohemium four , both unillustrated, the first two chapters deal with the Creation, the Fall of Satan , the story of Adam and Eve and the Deluge in four pages. Then follow forty more double-page chapters where a New Testament event is compared with three from the Old Testament , with four pictures each above a column of text. Usually each chapter occupies one two page opening.

The illustrations are deployed across openings, the verso showing an episode from the New Testament the so-called anti-type and the facing recto presenting three scenes from the Old Testament type. In the pictorial sense as well as in their content the episodes of the Old correspond to those of the New Testament, they 'pre-figure' it. The text comprises 45 chapters beginning with the Fall of Lucifer, continuing to the Creation of Man and the Flood, while the main portion of the text gives an account of the Salvation of Man through Christ and culminates in the Last Judgement. Scenes from the life of the Virgin precede the Incarnation of Christ. Pictures from other sources praise the completion of Salvation in Christ and his mother.
