The Spheres of Longing is a philosophical work by the noted Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor.[1] Although Ravenor served the Inquisition for several centuries, tracking down all manner of xenos and daemonic threats, his greatest fame after his death resulted from his writings.[2]

Even the great Space Marines are known to sometimes quote Ravenor,[3] as well as Colonel-Commissar Ibram Gaunt.
