Josephus, of course, places this census after Herod Archelaus' exile and the creation of Iudaea Province.

So far, I've been able to find early discussion of Luke 2:2 in conjunction with Quirinius' census in Josephus by Eusebius - and then the next mention I've found isn't until John Calvin. But I'm curious if there were any commentators in between the two.
