He was raised in the Portuguese Jewish community in Amsterdam. The Jewish religious authorities issued a cherem (Hebrew: חרם, a kind of ban, shunning, ostracism, expulsion, or excommunication) against him, effectively excluding him from Jewish society at age 23. His books were also later put on the Catholic Church's Index of Forbidden Books.
Spinoza's philosophical accomplishments and moral character prompted 20th century philosopher Gilles Deleuze to name him "the 'prince' of philosophers.

God according to Spinoza
Stop praying and hitting your chest!
What I want you to do is
To go around the world and enjoy your life.
I want you to experience, sing, and enjoy all which I have made for you.
