Devin C. Manzullo-Thomas is director of the Sider Institute for Anabaptist, Pietist, and Wesleyan Studies and the archives coordinator of the Ernest L. Boyer Center Archives at Messiah College. He is also a PhD student in American history at Temple University.
As a historian 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.
