He studied in Prague and in Olomouc, and, after travelling extensively in search of historical material, became professor of history at the German Charles-Ferdinand University of Prague and archivist for Bohemia in 1862. He died in Prague.
Gindely's chief work is his Geschichte des dreissigjährigen Krieges (Prague, 1869–1880), which has been translated into English (New York, 1884); and his historical work is mainly concerned with the period of the Thirty Years' War.
Perhaps the most important of his numerous other works are:
- Geschichte der böhmischen Brüder (Prague, 1857–1858)
- Rudolf II. und seine Zeit(1862–1868)
- A criticism of Wallenstein, Waldstein während seines ersten Generalats (1886)
- Kamil Krofta: Antonín Gindely o české otázce r. 1879 a jeho poměr k rozdělení pražské university r. 1882. In 30 ČČH 1/1924, pp. 95–108.
