La pandemia causata dal coronavirus ha imposto alla Chiesa cambiamenti significativi nella sua vita liturgica. Diverse forme di liturgie “virtuali” hanno mirato a sostituirsi alle celebrazioni in presenza del popolo per cui, finita l’emergenza, non si potrà semplicemente tornare alla normalità: lo spazio liturgico virtuale è diventato una realtà che non può essere negata. I contributi raccolti in questo volume cercano di valutare la problematica dal punto di vista antropologico, storico e liturgico-pastorale.
