Stories inseparably belong to the human existence: without them a person becomes rootless, and their identity becomes uncertain. However, stories can be varied in terms of their genre or content, as we have ordinary, family stories, or stories that preserve/reveal the identity of a society or community, and there are those ancient, sacred stories that try to explain the origin and meaning of human existence and for that reason they are preserved by the collective conscious of humanity. One thing is certain: every culture, religion, even the faith of the individual depend on whether the experience and knowledge preserved in the stories are passed on or become forgotten.
