Welcome to my website! My name is Devin Manzullo-Thomas, and I am senior lecturer in the humanities at Messiah College, where I also serve as director of the E. Morris and Leone Sider Institute for Anabaptist, Pietist, and Wesleyan Studies and director of archives. I am also a PhD candidate in American religious history at Temple University.
At Messiah College, I teach courses in Christian history and theology, American religious history, and peace history. I also teach in the college’s first-year writing program.
My research interests center on American Protestant Christianity (especially evangelicalism, Anabaptism, and the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition), commemoration, historical memory, and material culture. My dissertation offers a history of evangelical Protestant museums in the twentieth-century United States, and considers the political, social, and cultural work that these commemorative institutions have performed. Much of my other research and writing has centered on the history and theology of Brethren in Christ Church, particularly in the United States and Canada.
