The ritual of book burning is an ancient ritual. It goes back to 213 BC. Books have been burned for many reasons. But mainly books were burned for fear of power and religion. The first recorded book burnings where from the first emperor of China.
Shi Huang, in 213 BC, started the ritual of burning books when he burned books that he thought put a threat on his rule as the first emperor of China. The scholars who's books where burned were then buried alive, and so were the people who supported them. Hundreds of people were killed in this manner.
