The editorial committee of Biblia Hebraica Quinta (BHQ) agreed, at its 2018 annual meeting in Stuttgart, Germany, to add Dr. Christopher Dost to its team of participants. Dr. Dost is an assistant professor of Hebrew Bible at Alliance Theological Seminary and also teaches biblical languages and a number of Old Testament text courses.
Dr. Dost’s efforts will be focused on reviewing the Masorah, an extensive list of scribal notations that accompany the biblical text in many Medieval manuscripts of the Hebrew scriptures. BHQ is meant to improve upon and ultimately replace the most commonly used scholarly edition of the Hebrew Bible, Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia, which was first published as a single volume in 1977.

Congratulations to Dr. Dost!
