Alfred Jacob arranged for Ricart to get a scholarship to study at Woodbrooke, a center for Quaker Studies in Birmingham, England. There, Ricart studied the links between early Spanish mystics and Quakerism, and became a Quaker. Ricart was convinced that the mystic Spanish tradition, particularly Juan de Valdés, a 16th century writer and reformer, was very close to thoughts and writings of George Fox.
From 1942 to 1947, Ricart taught at the London Polytechnic Institute. In 1947, he and his family immigrated to the United States. From 1948 to 1971, Ricart taught Spanish literature and culture at the University of Kansas. Ricart continued to work with refugees, serving as a translator and interpreter for Central American refugees.
Ricart died in Boulder, Colorado, in April, 1987.
