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.
