Baruch de Spinoza (Wikipedia) – Ebenfalls 1927 erklärte Joseph Klausner, ordentlicher Professor für hebräische Literatur an der Hebrew University in Jerusalem, das jüdische Volk habe mit dem Cherem gegen Spinoza eine schreckliche Sünde begangen und solle den Ketzer-Bannfluch aufheben.

Ben Sira (aka Jesus son of Sirach ) – a misogynist ?
Ben Sira, Chapter 25 : (Women – Evil and Virtuous)
12 Worst of all wounds is that of the heart, worst of all evils is that of a woman.
13 Worst of all sufferings is that from one’s foes, worst of all vengeance is that of one’s enemies:
14 No poison worse than that of a serpent, no venom greater than that of a woman.
15 With a dragon or a lion I would rather dwell than live with an evil woman.
16 Wickedness changes a woman’s looks, and makes her sullen as a female bear.
17 When her husband sits among his neighbors, a bitter sigh escapes him unawares.
Ben Sira, Chapter 26 :
5 There are three things at which my heart quakes, a fourth before which I quail:
Though false charges in public, trial before all the people, and lying testimony are harder to bear than death,
6 A jealous wife is heartache and mourning and a scourging tongue like the other three.
7 A bad wife is a chafing yoke; he who marries her seizes a scorpion.
8 A drunken wife arouses great anger, for she does not hide her shame.
9 By her eyelids and her haughty stare an unchaste wife can be recognized.
10 Keep a strict watch over an unruly wife, lest, finding an opportunity, she make use of it;
11 Follow close if her eyes are bold, and be not surprised if she betrays you:
12 As a thirsty traveler with eager mouth drinks from any water that he finds,
So she settles down before every tent peg and opens her quiver for every arrow.
