Zos Kia Cultus (Here and Beyond) is the sixth album by Polish extreme metal band Behemoth. It was recorded at the Hendrix Studios in June–September 2002 and mastered at the High End Studio in Warsaw in September 2002.

The title refers to Zos Kia Cultus, a form of magic developed by Austin Osman Spare. At the end of the track "Horns ov Baphomet", the person speaking is Aleister Crowley. It is from the track At Sea from the CD The Great Beast Speaks, which contains audio files from the only known recording of his voice.

The album was re-released through Peaceville Records as a limited edition digipak. It contained an enhanced audio disc with a video of As Above So Below was included with the release.

This album marks the band's sound transition to more straightforward death metal.
