Devin C. Manzullo-Thomas is lecturer in the humanities at Messiah College, where he also serves as director of the E. Morris and Leone Sider Institute for Anabaptist, Pietist, and Wesleyan Studies and the coordinator of the Ernest L. Boyer Center Archives. He is also a PhD candidate in American religious history at Temple University.
At Messiah College he teaches courses in Christian history and theology, American religious history, and peace history. He also teaches in the college’s first-year writing program.
As a scholar Devin pursues two research agendas. In his work as a church historian he researches and writes about American evangelicalism, American Anabaptism, and the Brethren in Christ Church. In his work as a public historian of American religion, he studies the ways in which religious people construct, commemorate, and contest the past in public through institutions of public memory, including historical societies, heritage sites, museums, monuments, and archives.
