'''Typology''' refers to the concept of [[Old Testament]] scenes and characters as foreshadowing those within in the [[New Testament]] within the broader artform of Christian iconography. This was typically illustrated through the juxtaposition of imagery from the former with that of the latter, for example the depiction of [[King David|David's]] fight with [[Goliath]] mirrored by [[Jesus Christ|Christ's]] resistance to [[Satan]].
Typology was a popular and enduring form of religious illustration and was ubiquitous across Western art throughout the [[Middle Age|Middle Ages]].
