From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    (Luke 2:2; R.V., "enrolment"), "when Cyrenius was governor of
    Syria," is simply a census of the people, or an enrolment of
    them with a view to their taxation. The decree for the enrolment
    was the occasion of Joseph and Mary's going up to Bethlehem. It
    has been argued by some that Cyrenius (q.v.) was governor of
    Cilicia and Syria both at the time of our Lord's birth and some
    years afterwards. This decree for the taxing referred to the
    whole Roman world, and not to Judea alone. (See CENSUS.)
