Speculum Humanae Salvationis ('The Mirror of Salvation') is a blockbook dating from 1470, with 116 woodcut illustrations, each accompanied by a Latin caption and commentary. It was intended for use as a sourcebook and reference for sermons and religious instruction. The illustrations are reproduced here with translations of their commentaries, followed by Labriola and Smeltz's detailed interpretations, providing valuable information and insights into the interaction of visual and verbal elements in medieval religious works.
