I’m David McConeghy. Welcome to my homepage!

I’m an American religious historian with a PhD in religious studies. Here you’ll find links to my research, occasional blog posts about my current work on enchantment and secularism, and projects like my archive of spiritual warfare manuals.  

My current focus is developing a community for new methods in the study of religion. The experimental page is currently live at interreligioustudies.com. There you can find me trying to see new ways for religious studies to position itself as indispensable for navigating our religiously diverse world. If you enjoy learning about religion, you may find the site a valuable resource! 

My old website, A Lively Experiment, is still live with over 100 posts on popular culture and American religious history. Highlights include my pieces about world religions in the video game Civilization 5 and the symbolic elements of Hellboy. Be sure to catch the site’s most popular post on occult television and anime.
