Latin term or phrase: ex infernus - ex infernum
Another question: do both of these phrases means basically the same thing: "from hell"?

I've seen bother "infernus" and "infernum" used.

"Ex Infernus" seems to be a common phrase I've seen/read/heard, so I'm wondering if that's the "proper", or if "Ex Infernum" would mean the same -- though I can find very, very few situations where it's been used (a Sonata by Beethoven I believe has the phrase in it's title).

Explanation:
Must be ex inferno in Latin to be grammatical. Not a Classical Latin expression, apparently, but it is in the Vulgate Bible.
