The middle ages were the dark ages or the medieval ages. During this time period the church was pretty much the head and rule. Everyone was roman catholic and they put God first then the priest.

It's hard to pinpoint a narrow anthropological definition of the feudalism system, so for the purpose of this question I'm going to assume you mean the classic definition of the feudalism system, which was in effect in Europe during the Middle Ages. In my opinion, the knights did depend on the lords, but the lords also depended on the knights; it was a mutually beneficial relationship. The knights were given the task of fighting for the lord, whether it be defending the estate or attempting to seize other land. In return for their services, the lord would give them land that they could live on and work. The knights were essential to the lords because the knights offered the lords protection from exterior forces. So yes, the knights did depend on the lords for fief, or land, but the relationship was mutually beneficial if anything.
