Was any Medieval state ever "partially" Roman Catholic?

It is my understanding that in most of (if not all) the states in western medieval Europe the Roman Catholic church was the only recognized religious body. I'm looking for an example of a state with recognized Roman Catholic presence (priests and bishops with Papal investiture) but where there was at least one other dominant and recognized religious body (or at least presence if it wasn't as organized). My understanding of medieval history is pretty basic so it could be that my question is either silly or wrong or both in which case I apologize.
