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.  

Check out my current work over at The Religious Studies Project, where I produce podcasts about the study of religion as a member of of an amazing international team of religion scholars. 

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.
