      **************************************************
      Here are the German and Latin transcription and the English translation of the Jubilee biography of Magister Stephan Mörlin.  Note what happened to his brother Joachim ; that is so like him to ignore the doctors.  The Historisches Lexicon Evangelischer Jubel-Priester also has a biography for Johann Christian Moerlin.  But he seems to be from a different family ; this family had been in Liegnitz since 1528.  He was born in Liegnitz, Silesia, the son of Deacon Johann Moerlin ( 1610 – 1667 ) and the father of Johann Christian Moerlin, another pastor, and Christian Gottfried Moerlin, the director of the Gymnasium Altenberg.

      From Rev. Johann Matthias Gross ( 1676 – 1748 ), Historisches Lexicon Evangelischer Jubel-Priester, Zweyter Theil [ Historical Dictionary of the Evangelical Jubilee Pastors, Second Part ] ( Free Imperial City of Nürnberg :  Michael Arnold, 1732 ), page 139 :

      The German transcription :

      101 ) MOERLINUS, M Stephan, wohlverdienter Pastor zu Hilpertshausen, war von Westhausen aus Francken gebürtig, dahin dessen Vater, Herr Jodocus Mörlinus, von dem Professoratu Logicæ auf recommendation des seel. Dr. Lutheri ist befördert worden, und war ein Bruder des berühmten und sehr verfolgten Joachimi Mörlini, welcher endlich als Bischoff zu Sammland den 23sten Maii An. 1571. gestorben da er sich, wider alles Einrathen der Medicorum einem Stein in der Blase wolte schneiden lassen ; wie auch des hochverdientë Coburgis. General-Superintendenten Dr. Maximiliani Mörlini, ( dessen Lebens=Beschreibung in Thomæ aufgegangenen Licht am Abend, weitläufftig a pag. 359. beschrieben stehet, die aber berde in dem Gelehrten Lexico nebst noch vielen andern ausgelassen sind. )  Dieser aber wurde anfänglich An. 1554. Diaconus zu Coburg, und nach 7. Jahren kam er zu dem Pastorat in Hilpertshausen, allwo er der 5te Evangelische Pfarrer worden ist, unterschrieb auch die Formulam Concordiæ, und starb erst An. 1604. eben in seinem Jubel=Jahr, wie aus M. Guthens wunderlicher Güte GOttes, Herr Thomæ in aufgegangenen Licht am Abend p. 438. berichtet hat.

      The English translation :

      101 ) MOERLINUS, Magister Stephan, a well-to-do Pastor of Hilpertshausen, was a native of Westhausen in Franconia, to whose father, Mr. Jodocus Mörlinus, was promoted from the Professorship of Logic on the recommendation of the Bl. Dr. Lutheri, and was a brother of the famous and very persecuted Joachimi Mörlini, who finally died as a bishop of Sammland on 23rd of May AD 1571, when he had cut himself a stone in the bladder against all the advices of the Physicians ; as well as the highly deserved General Superintendent of Coburg Dr. Maximiliani Mörlini, ( whose biography has been extensively given by Thomæ’s Aufgegangenen Licht am Abend, on page 359 but which, however, is omitted from the scholarly Lexico, together with many others. )  This man, however, was at first in the year 1554 Deacon in Coburg, and after 7 years he came to the Pastorate in Hilpertshausen, where he was the 5th Evangelical Pastor, also signed the Formula of Concord, and died at the beginning of the year 1604, just in his Year of Jubilee, as reported from Magister Guth’s Wunderlicher Güte GOttes [ Wonderfully Good LORD ], Mr. Thomæ, in the Aufgegangenen Licht am Abend [ Rising Light in the Evening ], p. 438.

      From Prof. Dr. P[aul]. Lehfeldt ( 1848 – 1900 ) and Prof. Dr. G[eorg]. Voss ( 1854 – 1932 ), editors, Bau- und Kunst-Denkmäler Thüringens. :  Herzogthum Sachsen-Meiningen, Band II :  Kreis Hildburghausen.  Amtsgerichtsbezirke Hildburghausem, Eisfeld, Themar, Heldburg und Römhild [ Monuments and Memorials of Thuringia.  :  Duchy of Saxe-Meiningen, Volume II :  District of Hildburghausen.  District Court Divisions of Hildburghausen, Eisfeld, Themar, Heldburg and Römhild ] ( Jena, Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach :  Gustav Fischer, 1904 ), pp. 67 – 68

      From Wilbur Hanson Kalb:
      it speaks to the architecture of Hildburghausen which Stephen Mörlin had a hand in building the Superintendents house.

      Schlossstrasse Nr. 2, ehemalige Superintendentur, später Gasthaus zur Traube, jetzt zum Technikum gehörig. Flachbogen-Thor mit :  1780 und Namenszug im Schlussstein.  Ueber dem Erdgeschoss ein durchgehendes Gesims ; am Obergeschoss flach vortretende, rechteckige, unten an den Seiten verkröpfte Fensterbrüstungen mit Blattgehängen an den Flächen ( diese Verzierung findet sich an noch vielen Häusern in Hildburghausen ). — Im Flur eine Tafel mit :
      HAS AVTHOR STEPHANVS MORLINVS PROVEHIT AEDES
      QVI DOCET HAC CHRISTI PASTOR IN VRBE FIDEM
      NON FERA TEMPESTAS NON FVR NON VNDA NEC IGNIS
      HANG VIOLET, TANGANT DAMNA NEC VLLA DOMVM
      CONDITA QVEM VERSVS PRIMVS DAT TECTA SVB ANNVM
      SERVA ET PRAESIDIO CHRISTE TEGE ANGELICA.
      ( Stephan Mörlin führt als Schöpfer empor dies Gebäude,
      Welcher hier lehrt in der Stadt als Pfarrer den christlichen Glauben.
      Möge kein wüthendes Wetter, kein Dieb, nicht Wasser noch Feuer
      Sie verletzen, nicht treff’ irgend ein Schaden dies Haus.
      Und, den der erste Vers als Gründer nennt dieses Daches,
      Christe, schirme du ihn, deck’ ihn mit englischem Schutz.)
      Stephan Mörlin war hier Pfarrer von 1561 – 1604. nach Human, Chronik, S. 394, der aber dies Haus nicht erwähnt.  Das Haus wurde 1897 umgebaut.

      Translated from the German :

      now belongs to the Technikum. Flat-arch Thor with: 1780 and name in the closing stone. Above the ground floor, a continuous cornice; on the upper floor flat, rectangular, window-armorings at the bottom of the sides, with leaf hangings on the surfaces (this ornamentation can still be found in many houses in Hildburghausen). - In the corridor a table with:
      Schlossstrasse Nr. 2, formerly the Superintendentur, later the “zur Traube [ At The Grape ]” tavern, now belongs to the Technical Institute.  Flat-arched door mit :  1780 and the name inscripted on the closing stone.  Above the ground floor, a continuous cornice ; on the upper floor, flat and rectangular window-armorings at the bottom of the sides, with hanging leaves on the surface ( this ornamentation can still be found in many houses in Hildburghausen ). — In the corridor a table with :
      HAS AVTHOR STEPHANVS MORLINVS PROVEHIT AEDES
      QVI DOCET HAC CHRISTI PASTOR IN VRBE FIDEM
      NON FERA TEMPESTAS NON FVR NON VNDA NEC IGNIS
      HANG VIOLET, TANGANT DAMNA NEC VLLA DOMVM
      CONDITA QVEM VERSVS PRIMVS DAT TECTA SVB ANNVM
      SERVA ET PRAESIDIO CHRISTE TEGE ANGELICA.
      ( Stephan Mörlin leads as creator of this building,
      Who teaches here in the city Christ’s faith as pastor.
      May no raging storm, no fire, no water, no thief
      Nor you bring here harm or damage against this house.
      And, called by the first verse as founder of this roof,
      Christ, shield thou him, cover him with English armor. )
      Stephan Mörlin was the Pastor here from 1561 to 1604, according to Human, Chronik [ der Stadt Hildburghausen ], p. 394, which, however, does not mention this house.  The house was rebuilt in 1897.
