Yes Palamas had a whole weird thing with the "essence" of God and the Uniates ARE allowed to venerate him even though the west has declared what he teaches at least borderline heresy.

When were they allowed to venerate him? Before or after the Council?

Not sure. But I talked to a someone who is a uniate and he used him as his confirmation name.

That seems suspect, to say the least.

And given the fact that Uniates have been practically sold out to the Orthodox since the council, there's even more reason to be wary.
