Perhaps this question has been broached before, but why did Heaven have a military prior to Satan's rebellion (or did it not have)?
   
  Did Milton believe in a more ancient struggle with a personified Chaos and his forces? In the Bible, some imagery suggests that chaos was an enemy defeated by God. Did Milton draw upon this?
