apologia

apologia a formal written defence of one's opinions or conduct; the word is Latin, and is recorded from the late 18th century, but its currency is largely due to John Henry Newman's Apologia pro Vita Sua (1864), the history of his religious life up to the time of his reception into the Roman Catholic Church in 1845.
