 cit·i·zen·ship /ˈsɪtəzənˌʃɪp/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Cit·i·zen·ship, n. The state of being a citizen; the status of a citizen.

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n 1: the status of a citizen with rights and duties
      2: conduct as a citizen; "award for good citizenship"

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    the rights and privileges of a citizen in distinction from a
    foreigner (Luke 15:15; 19:14; Acts 21:39). Under the Mosaic law
    non-Israelites, with the exception of the Moabites and the
    Ammonites and others mentioned in Deut. 23:1-3, were admitted to
    the general privileges of citizenship among the Jews (Ex. 12:19;
    Lev. 24:22; Num. 15:15; 35:15; Deut. 10:18; 14:29; 16:10, 14).
      The right of citizenship under the Roman government was
    granted by the emperor to individuals, and sometimes to
    provinces, as a favour or as a recompense for services rendered
    to the state, or for a sum of money (Acts 22:28). This "freedom"
    secured privileges equal to those enjoyed by natives of Rome.
    Among the most notable of these was the provision that a man
    could not be bound or imprisoned without a formal trial (Acts
    22:25, 26), or scourged (16:37). All Roman citizens had the
    right of appeal to Caesar (25:11).
