Revolutionary movements of various types that sprung up in the Republican zones were responsible for the burning and looting of numerous churches and monasteries. In order to bring to an end such events in Madrid, the Committee initiated an informational and educational project focusing on respect and care for the nation’s historic patrimony. Among their activities was a project for a museum of religious art, lectures and visits to the Museo del Prado, radio announcements, and, most effectively, numerous illustrated posters which called on people to respect Spanish cultural patrimony. These were initially designed by Fine Art students and from 1937 various different types of posters, pamphlets and leaflets were issued which were distributed and hung on buildings under the Committee´s care
