Eduard Iricinschi studied Philosophy in Bucharest (B.A. & M.A.),  Religious Studies at New York University (M.A. 2006) and earned his Ph.D. in Religion from Princeton University, New Jersey, in 2009. He worked as an adjunct professor in the Religious Studies Program at New York University from 2001 to 2002, and as a research assistant for Prof. Elaine Pagels in the Department of Religion at Princeton University from 2003 to 2007. From 2009 to 2014 Eduard has been a Polonsky Postdoctoral Fellow at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute (Jerusalem, Israel) with a project investigating the role of ancient books as real and imagined objects in the formation of late antique heresiological writings.

Eduard Iricinschi specialized in the history of ancient Christianity, the Nag Hammadi literature, Manichaeism, early Christian heresiological literature, and fourth-century Egypt. He is the co-editor (with Holger Zellentin) of the volume Heresy and Identity in Late Antiquity (Tübingen, 2008) and recently co-edited (with Lance Jennot, Philippa Townsend and Nicola Denzey) the volume Beyond the Gnostic Gospels: Studies Building on the Work of Elaine Pagels (2013). During his fellowship at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg, he will work on a project titled “Late Antique Religious Literacies between the Eastern Mediterranean and North-Africa.”
