Initial thesis at the beginning of this paper was that haruspicy originates from the Near East. To test this thesis the comparative method is used in which written and materialistic sources from the Near East area and ones found on the Ancient West area are compared. Before presentation and interpretation, and afterwards the comparison of the sources, current achievements and studies are represented, with the related terminology being explained, and with the addition of general and modern day medicine terms. After using the comparative method it was established that the sources contain different information; the ones from the Near East area mostly indicate on ritual, its performance, meaning of the omens and the role of the sorcerer. Materialistic sources are mostly for utility purposes. On the other hand written sources from the ancient west area indicate on the big deficiency of the Etruscans sources, because of which preserved sources only contain small amount of practice use, focusing on the organ that is being observed; by whom; when; on whose request and interpreting the meaning of omen. Compendium of both disciplines, made using modern day literature, enables further comparisons and making the conclusion that haruspicina originates from the Near East.
