Research Interests

Dr. Minets’s primary research interest concerns intellectual and social processes in Late Antiquity with special attention to the history of early Christianity, the relationship between its different branches, and their connections with traditional Greco-Roman culture, Rabbinic Judaism, and later with Islam. She explores Christian ideas on languages, linguistic history and diversity, and investigates how different languages and language-related socio-cultural stereotypes influenced the formation of distinct Christian identities in the Western and Eastern Mediterranean, Europe and the Near East.
