Re: Was Saruman evil..

I agree with Gilthalion. Saruman was not evil to begin with but slowly became corrupted by his own desire for power and control. At first he deluded himself into believing that he continued to work towards the goals of the Istari, but later dropped even this pretense. Between LoTR and UT it appears Saruman became corrupted by his own desires well prior to the first time he looked into the Palantir.

were kindled clear, and waxing bright
shone like stars that in the North
above the reek of earth leap forth." </p>
