Best Answer

"Terribilis" means terrifying, terrible. "This is a horrible place." See also: en arcadia ego, Poussin, and Rennes-le-Château.

*Update* Actually, the Latin phrase "Terribilis est locus iste" is a biblical text commonly employed as a cantus firmus throughout many Renaissance texts. From Gen 28:17, it translates to "Awesome is this place." You'll see it in motifs dealing with the dedication of cathedrals, as in Dufay's 1436 "Nuper Rosarum Flores" composed for the consecration of Brunelleschi's dome in Florence.
