No. The Catholic Church had influence over much of Europe, but there were few states that instituted actual canon law, if any. I believe perhaps Teutonic Prussia, the Outremer states, and the Knights in Cyprus may have, considering their religious natures.
But regardless, European feudal law still sees its roots in Roman law that was developed prior to the founding of Christianity.
As a pleasant warning, before we proceed, when I post in RotW, all of your beliefs, values, and ideals are completely irrelevant to me, and I will do everything in my power to block and negate your points and replace them with my own far superior and more logical points. If you find this offensive or incomprehensible, then that's absolutely perfect. If not, even better, as if you don't, then there's really no point in you replying to me.
