The Index Librorum Prohibitorum ("List of Prohibited Books") is a list of publications which the Catholic Church censored for being a danger to itself and the faith of its members. The various editions also contain the rules of the Church relating to the reading, selling and censorship of books. The aim of the list was to prevent the reading of immoral books or works containing theological errors and to prevent the corruption of the faithful.

Cult fiction is a term used to denote literature that has attracted a cult following.

Books that tend to attract a cult following include banned books, transgressive fiction, controversial books, erotic literature, drug literature, rants and incendiary tracts and some genre fiction. The earliest compilation of cult fiction was the Index Librorum Prohibitorum (index of prohibited books) by the Catholic church.
