The title is Latin for "For the Greater Glory of Satan". It is a parody of Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam ("For the Greater Glory of God"); the motto of the Society of Jesus, conceived by Infernus after having read an article on the counter-reformation and the Jesuits.

The cover artwork used is from the painting Dante and Virgil by William-Adolphe Bouguereau.
