Modern followers of Druidry, certainly many members of the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids, are far more antinomian than legalistic in their outlook, and a study of this might be of interest to a postgraduate theology student. I think it would be correct to say that non-affiliated Pagans are also more inclined in that direction, whereas Wiccans would be less so, and would place more authority in tradition, the Wiccan Rede, and the HP & HPS. A psychological exploration of this might include looking at the dimension of inner-directedness vs. outer-directedness, with an antinomian approach being more likely to be espoused by the inner-directed.
