Most Orthodox I know consider him a gadflay. His Sophilogy was condemned as a heresy.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Would you happen to know where I could find the Orthodox Church's language condemning his sophiology as a heresy?

I wonder if those people have read any of his works?  (I am just introducing myself to him and his writings, so it may be a while before I have an informed opinion on him.)

He's not Orthodox, but an apostate to Roman Catholicism.

As for Sophiology, it was condemned by the Moscow Patriarchate and the Russian Church Abroad in the 1930s, IIRC. The turbulent times prevented church trials from happening and specific proponents from being disciplined.

Is there a philosophy(er) that is endorsed by or often used as a basis for Orthodox theology?

No. Orthodoxy comes from divine revelation, and is articulated and theologized by the Holy Fathers.

they do use philosophy, however: St. Clement of Alexandria used Stoicism, Origin Platonism, St. John of Damascus Aristoteleanism.  But only as a tool to explain revelation.  Not as a source. As soon as it is used as a basis of dogma alongside revelation, disaster sets in.

I guess that is what I was getting at...I will have to do some reading.  Thank you.

It is better to take Orthodox theology as a basis for philosophy, rather than the inverse. Richard Swinburne has done this.
