There are tons of Biblical allusions, since it is basically the re-telling of the Adam and Eve story in the Bible and their fall from grace.

There are also Classical allusions to Greek and Roman mythology.

Check out the eNotes summary and critical analysis of Paradise Lost for more information, or just search "allusions and Paradise Lost" on Google.
