Professor Pak specializes in the history of Christianity in late medieval and early modern Europe. Her teaching focuses on the theology of the Protestant reformers, the Protestant Reformation and the Jews, women and the Reformation, and the history of biblical interpretation. Her research and writing engage the history of biblical interpretation during the Reformation era. In her research, as well, she gives particular attention to the role of biblical exegesis in the history of Christian-Jewish relations.
