Throughout history a large number of books have been banned only because they contained various uncomfortable truths or tales. These books have been systematically hunted down and destroyed by the representatives of the church. Some copies have even been poisoned, thus giving the books the reputation of being cursed as those who read them ended up dying because of the poison. Such was the case of the books mentioning or telling tales about beings belonging in neither Heaven nor Hell, giants or Black Knights.
There has always been an interconnection between history and mythology, as mythology has always influenced history to a certain extent. People have worshipped the gods of old, giving them offerings and sacrifices. Ancient cultures have used symbols inspired from mythology in order to represent their ideals and ways of life. Rulers have used amulets or have appealed to magic in order to attract the favor of the forces of nature in order to bring them good fortune. These are but a few examples of links between history and mythology.
